Aer Lingus and Singapore Airlines are both getting back into business with long-haul flights from Manchester Airport.
The Irish airline is very busy with three new destinations – Barbados, which started last week and is three times weekly, from 1 December twice weekly to JFK New York, and to Orlando and its theme parks from 11 December.
Singapore Airlines’ history with Manchester Airport has been one of the longest on record having operated continuously since 1986, until the Covid-19 pandemic forced 98% of its flights globally to cease.
Singapore Airlines originally launched its transatlantic services to Houston in 2016, during the Airline’s 30th year of Manchester operations. In 2017, the airline introduced the first commercial A350 flight from Manchester Airport, as the aircraft also debuted on the Singapore – Manchester – Houston route. From 1 December the airline will again operate to Houston, three times a week over the winter period.
