Aer Lingus Offers New Services

Aer Lingus is to add a new route to its regional business and boost one of its transatlantic routes.
Aer Lingus Regional, which is operated by Stobart Air, has added a route from Dublin to Leeds Bradford, which will begin on 23 October.
The airline says that it will carry up to 70,000 passengers annually on the new route, on its brand new fleet of regional aircraft. Julian Carr, managing director of Stobart Air said that it will offer more choice and convenience for customers and that it will enable "UK based passengers to connect with Aer Lingus mainline services in Dublin where they can pre-clear security and costumers for some of the main US cities."
Of interest to these passengers may be the announcement that, following on from Aer Lingus' re-launch of its Dublin to San Francisco service from next summer, the airline has confirmed that the service will now operate seven days a week, according to a report in the Irish Independent.
Flights to San Francisco can now be booked for next summer via the Aer Lingus website.
