Good to see Aer Lingus back again. If I've got this right, it's the fourth incarnation of Aer Lingus we've seen at LBA. Aer Lingus mainline in the 60s and 70s, Commuter in the 80s and 90s, Stobart in the 2010s and 2020s and now Emerald. What next ?
Yes good to see and it will make LBAYorkie happy I am sure.
Shame they got their wires crossed badly though regarding the Belfast route, stating it will commence flights from mid May, when in fact they are already operating and LBA should have been included in the list of start up routes.
What Emerald were saying is that there will be additional flights from mid May, not that the route starts mid May.
It's really disappointing when a specialist journal gets it so wrong as it could actually lose Emerald bookings on the route between now and mid May. You expect errors in the likes of the YEP but not in this publication.
Especially disappointing when the same article has a quote from Emerald clearly stating the service from May is additional to those already existing. In common with many publications these days it seems checking before publication has gone out of the window.
Aer Lingus Regional has brought the date forward for increasing the frequency of the Leeds to Belfast City route.
It was due to increased from the current 13x to 16x weekly from start of winter timetable in October, but will now increase to 19x weekly starting from Monday, July 24th.
