Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, has added extra capacity on its Dublin to Isle of Man route to cater for Irish motorcycle racing fans travelling to the Isle of Man TT races taking place from 28th May to 10th June.

The Isle of Man TT is one of the oldest and most prestigious motorcycle races in the world and is attended by approximately 40,000 people each year. Aer Lingus Regional will add eight additional flights to cater for up to 1,500 extra passengers looking to attend the famous event and sample the two weeks of racing and festivities. Included in this are three daily flights each Thursday and Friday for the duration of this world-class sporting event.

Martin Saxton, Stobart Air’s Chief Commercial Director, said: “The Isle of Man TT is one of the oldest and most spectacular motorcycle races in Europe. It is famous for its unique combination of breath-taking racing, world-class hospitality and beautiful scenery.

“The additional capacity on the route is a direct response to the increased passenger demand for seating in advance of the Isle of Man TT race. This move will ensure additional choice and flexibility for our Dublin passengers flying to the Isle of Man during the two weeks of racing.”

Lead in fares start from €29.99 one way.
