Good news for air travellers and for the economy as a whole this morning, as Aer Lingus has announced the biggest expansion to its winter schedule in over 10 years.
The carrier has announced the introduction of new winter routes to Liverpool in the UK and Washington DC in the United States. The new destinations are expected to add 275,000 extra seats.
The 2015/16 schedule, unveiled this morning, includes new daily flights to Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport commencing on October 23, and it also expands the airline’s new Washington route with a four-times weekly service, to January 4, 2016.
No new routes or increased capacity have been announced for either Cork or Shannon airports, however.
