Aer Lingus Regional is to reintroduce the Dublin to Newquay air route pioneered by Brymon Airways with a DHC Dash 8 in the 1980s.
This time it will be an ATR 72-600 with 68 seats against the original 50 again taking around 70 minutes.
The current Dublin alternative is via Regional to Manchester and thence Flybe south. Commencing 1 May there will be up to five-times weekly service by summer 2015.
Aer Lingus Regional is operated by Stobart Air who under the Flybe franchise fly many UK regional services into Dublin and also Southend – Newquay in the summer. The new route will also offer a convenient transatlantic connection via Dublin for passengers in the South West of England.
Julian Carr, Managing Director of Stobart Air, said: “Aer Lingus Regional is very pleased to be offering Ireland’s only direct route to Cornwall. We are confident that it will become a popular route, and a key part of our summer services. The addition of Newquay, our 13th route from Dublin Airport, reflects the ongoing success of our airline in providing value and key connections for our customers." www.aerlingus.com
