Aer Lingus Announces 10 New Routes This Winter

Aer Lingus will launch 10 new routes as part of its winter schedule for 2011/2012, including an escape-to-the-sun service from Cork to Las Palmas in Gran Canaria.

The Gran Canaria flights start Sunday 30th October 2011 flying once weekly. Aer Lingus already services the Canaries and runs scheduled services from Ireland to Lanzarote, Tenerife and Fuerteventura.

Also new will be a three times a week service from Cork to Barcelona and a twice weekly service from Cork to Rome, plus twice weekly services from Belfast to both Rome and Alicante.

Ski bunnies will be able to get to Italy for some winter ski fun as well. The extensive route network from Dublin will include four flights each week to Milan Malpensa throughout the 2011/2012 winter season. Dublin-Stuttgart services are being extended with four weekly flights from Dublin.

Aer Lingus is repeatedly named one of the friendliest airlines worldwide with excellent customer service. Many people don’t realise that it flies from no less than 12 UK airports and also runs long haul flights to the US – including Chicago, New York and Orlando – from London. Its Dublin to USA routes are excellent, servicing most main airports including LA, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Orlando, Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco and many more.

Meanwhile closer to home, Aer Lingus Regional will extend its services from Dublin to Aberdeen and Bristol for the winter period and flights from Shannon to popular city-break capital Edinburgh will run all winter.

Aer Lingus’s director of communications Declan Kearney said: “There is something for everyone in our winter schedule, whether you prefer winter sun in the Canary Islands or skiing in the Italian Alps, Aer Lingus has the holiday destination for you, combining great value fares with excellent in-flight service.”
