Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, launched the first flight on its new route from Dublin to East-Midlands Airport in the UK.
The addition of East Midlands brings to 27 the number of destinations served by Aer Lingus Regional for the summer season and follows the recent announcement of a new route to Doncaster Sheffield from Dublin Airport and Birmingham from Shannon Airport.
Aer Lingus Regional expects to carry up to 30,000 customers on the route in the first twelve months and will operate all services on the company’s brand new fleet of aircraft. All flights to and from East Midlands will operate from Aer Lingus’ hub at Dublin Airport’s new Terminal 2.
This summer Aer Lingus Regional will operate 560 flights per week across 27 routes in Ireland, the UK and France.
