22nd May 2007 Print
Aer Lingus has introduced six new European routes to its winter schedule and twenty-five new flights a week from Dublin and Cork on existing routes.

From the end of October, new services from Dublin to Helsinki, Bucharest, Agadir and Funchal will come into operation, in addition to the recommencement of services from Dublin to Copenhagen and Cork to Munich.

Services started in summer 2007 from Dublin to Vilnius and Cork to Manchester have been extended to the winter schedule. Additional capacity will also be added on 14 existing European routes from Dublin and Cork.

This expansion brings the number of new routes introduced so far in 2007 to thirteen. The development is underpinned by the addition of two new A320 short haul aircraft, which will arrive this winter and will be based in Dublin airport.

Announcing the expansion, Chief Executive, Dermot Mannion said, "The introduction of these new routes reaffirms Aer Lingus' commitment to providing direct, low fares access for Irish customers to new destinations as well as providing real growth opportunities in inbound tourism from emerging markets. The delivery of two new short haul aircraft allows us to strengthen and grow our short haul network. With over 60 direct services from Ireland to Europe, including popular sun, city break and business destinations this development offers our customers more choice, greater flexibility and an enhanced travel experience".

Special introductory one-way fares excluding taxes and charges are as follows:

Dublin to Bucharest €55
Dublin to Agadir €55
Dublin to Helsinki €55
Dublin to Funchal €55
Dublin to Copenhagen €19
Cork to Munich €29
