Ireland West Airport announce new Aer Lingus Service

#Traveltradetogether

Ireland West Airport welcomed the commencement of a brand new daily service connecting the west coast of Ireland to London Heathrow with Aer Lingus.

The inaugural Aer Lingus flight EI916, operated by an Airbus A320, landed at 12:44pm last Sunday afternoon from Heathrow Airport. Aer Lingus will operate daily flights to London Heathrow, London’s biggest and most well-connected airport, on a year-round basis.

This new service is another milestone in the airport’s history as it’s the first time the airport will be connected to one of Europe’s major international airport hubs.

As well as providing a daily service to Heathrow, this new service means customers can enjoy seamless connections via London Heathrow Airport to North America. Aer Lingus currently has partnerships with a network of airlines out of Heathrow Airport, providing access to an ever-growing number of routes and benefits. Airlines include Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia, JetBlue and United Airlines. British Airways codeshares on Aer Lingus services which will offer global access from Ireland West Airport to/from UK and London Heathrow. British Airways also codeshares on Aer Lingus operated North American and Canadian services for connecting passengers to and from the UK.

The new route will boost inbound tourism to the West of Ireland. Given the proximity of Ireland West Airport to the Wild Atlantic Way and the huge spotlight on the west of Ireland following the box-office hit The Banshees of Inisherin, the new route will provide increased access for GB visitors and those travelling from all around the world via Heathrow to one of Ireland’s most popular regions.
