Aer Lingus is to increase the frequency of its Liverpool-Dublin route from May.
The carrier currently offers two flights per day (three on Thursdays and Fridays), operated by Stobart Air on behalf of Aer Lingus Regional, and with British Airways codesharing on the route.
This will rise to “up to four departures per day” from May 2, with early morning, lunchtime, late afternoon and evening departures from Liverpool.
The increased frequencies will allow for better connections onto Aer Lingus’ transatlantic services from Dublin to New York JFK, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Orlando, Washington, San Francisco and Toronto, with new routes to New York Newark and Hartford, Connecticut also launching this year (see news October 21, 2015).
Aer Lingus was bought by IAG – the parent company of British Airways, Iberia and Vueling – last summer (see news August 19, 2015).
The carrier is set to relaunch its Gold Circle loyalty programme as Aer Club at the end of March “in partnership with Avios” (see news November 17, 2015).
