Aer Lingus

Whilst still in a fight with Ryanair over ownership (and investor Etihad saying that its current 3% stake is not for sale – it could even increase) Aer Lingus has demonstrated considerable vigour by announcing six new routes and increased frequencies for the coming winter.

Brand new are Dublin to Verona and Stockholm, and Cork to Brussels.  The summer only routes from Dublin to Bordeaux, Copenhagen and Venice will continue all year around.  From the Irish capital frequencies will be increased on a further eight popular routes including Amsterdam, Berlin and Vienna.  There will also be extra flights to Lanzarote and Tenerife which will be music to the ears of those seeking out a winter sunshine holiday in the Canary Islands.

Aer Lingus is flying high after posting strong annual results with pre-tax profits of E84.4m (£71m) last year, up from E27.2m (£22.8m) in 2010.

Aer Lingus’ Director of Communications, Declan Kearney, said: “We look forward to welcoming customers on board our new services and to continue in our mission of connecting Ireland with the world, by offering the most flights and the best product in the Irish market.”  www.aerlingus.com
