Extra Dublin flights for Glasgow Airport passengers
Glasgow Airport passengers are set to enjoy more city breaks to Dublin after extra flights have been added to Aer Lingus Regional’s service.
The airline currently runs three flights a day to the Irish capital and is set to increase this by adding an extra flight on Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays.
Dublin is a popular destination for both business travellers and holidaymakers. It also serves as a connection point to enable Glasgow Airport passengers to reach long-haul destinations like New York, Boston and Chicago.
The new Dublin service will depart from Glasgow at 13.10 on Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays. The return flights will leave Dublin at 11.55.
Glasgow Airport’s business development manager Paul White said: “This significant increase in what is a hugely popular service is fantastic news for passengers travelling between both Glasgow and Dublin for business purposes or visitors looking to enjoy a city break in each destination.
“The addition of this service also guarantees greater choice and flexibility for passengers making onward connections to 13 North American destinations from Dublin.
“The Republic of Ireland’s capital city remains one of our busiest routes with thousands of passengers making the short trip across the Irish Sea. Likewise, Glasgow continues to be a very popular destination for Irish visitors, so this latest announcement from Aer Lingus Regional is very welcome news indeed.”
Graeme Buchanan, Managing Director of Aer Lingus Regional franchise partner Stobart Air which will operate the service, said “We are delighted to offer a more frequent service on our Glasgow Dublin route.
“This is a popular route from both cities but is particularly beneficial for passengers travelling from Glasgow, via Dublin, and on to the US as they can save time by availing of the Dublin preclearance service.”
