Aer Lingus has launched a new route from Leeds-Bradford to Dublin airport.
For the first time in 14 years, the airline will operate two daily return flights between Leeds Bradford and Dublin and expects to carry 70,000 passengers on the route in 2015.
The Leeds-Dublin route will be serviced by the airline’s newest aircraft which were delivered brand new in June this year.
This route will provide a link to the US through Dublin for Leeds-based passengers who can connect to Aer Lingus mainline transatlantic services. This includes flights to New York, Boston, Chicago, Orlando, San Francisco and Toronto.
Dublin airport provides customs and security pre-clearance for passengers travelling to the US which means they are treated as domestic passengers on arrival and so avoid long delays often associated with security checks in the US.
