Aer Lingus announces new winter routes from Gatwick
3 September 2009
Since launching its first international base outside of Ireland at Gatwick in April this year, Aer Lingus is set to fulfil its promise of more routes with six new destinations being added to its current schedule.
Aer Lingus will introduce Bucharest, Eindhoven, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Warsaw and Vilinus for winter this year. Its current flights to Dublin, Faro, Knock, Malaga, Munich, Vienna and Zurich will continue, but Nice will cease during the winter months. With the addition of these new routes, the airline will operate 118 round trips a week.
Aer Lingus Corporate Affairs Director, Enda Corneille, says: "Aer Lingus' European destinations are still proving to be a huge hit with our customers. Since our first launch back in April, we have sold over 400,000 flights and counting.
"To give our customers a greater choice in destinations, we've introduced six new routes which are popular to travellers during the winter months - perfect for anyone looking to escape the British winter.
"We are still competitively priced, as well as making life a little easier for customers with free allocated seating, self service check-in kiosks, web check-in and onboard service that puts our competitors to shame!"
The six new destinations are on sale from today, 9th June, and will be available for travel from the 25th October with the exception of Vilnius, which commences on the 10th September.
