Ireland-based regional airline Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Aer Arann, launched three daily flights between its hub in the Irish capital Dublin and the city of Birmingham in the UK from June 1.
The new flights will double Aer Lingus Regional’s capacity from Birmingham. The airline now operates 20 flights a day linking Birmingham with four Irish cities – Dublin, Cork, Shannon and Ireland West Airport Knock.
The Dublin-Birmingham flights will be serviced by the airline’s recently inducted ATR 72-600 aircraft.
Passengers flying from Birmingham will be able to connect to US bound flights via Dublin and benefit from immigration and customs pre-clearance at Dublin airport.
Aer Lingus Regional also flies to destinations including London’s Southend, Edinburgh and Manchester from Dublin.
