Aer Lingus success

The news comes as Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Aer Arann, announced a 23% increase in numbers for January, compared to the same period last year.

Almost 80,000 passengers flew with the airline in January – up from 65,000 in 2013.

Simon Fagan, Commercial Director, Aer Arann, said: “These numbers are very encouraging, especially when you consider the challenging weather conditions across Ireland and the UK in January.  Our focus on providing high frequency services, adding routes to the network and investing in a new aircraft fleet is resonating with passengers.”

Mr Fagan described the volume of advanced sales from British destinations to the United States as “very encouraging”.

“Passengers are responding to the benefits of being able to pre-clear US customs and immigration at both Dublin and Shannon airports,” he said.

Aer Arann will introduce a new Cork to Newcastle route next month, whilst Shannon – Bristol also commences.  There are plans to grow existing routes from Dublin but Mr Fagan would say no more!  www.aerlingus.com
