Update on Aer Lingus Replacement Schedule

Direct News Source

Aer Lingus today provided a further update on its replacement schedule following the decision by Aer Lingus Regional franchise operator Stobart Air to cease operations.

Of the 12 routes immediately impacted by Stobart Air's decision to cease trading, Aer Lingus is operating five routes until at least 19th July: Dublin / Edinburgh; Dublin / Manchester; Belfast City / Manchester; Belfast City / Birmingham; Belfast City / Edinburgh.

As announced yesterday, for at least the next week, BA City Flyer is operating two routes: Belfast City / Exeter; Belfast City / Leeds Bradford.

The provision of this replacement schedule has ensured that all impacted customers due to travel in the next week have been offered alternative travel arrangements. Where suitable alternative arrangements are not available, impacted customers will also have the option of a full refund. 

Alternative operations for the outstanding routes are still being determined. Aer Lingus is ready to operate the Dublin / Kerry route, subject to an appropriate PSO arrangement being put in place. Aer Lingus is also actively exploring options that would enable the provision of a Dublin / Donegal service.
