ALR Ireland West Airport Knock – Birmingham Route

From 11th June 2012, Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Aer Arann will provide daily flights from Ireland West Airport Knock to Birmingham with fares starting from €29.99 one way including taxes. The news comes a week after bmibaby, which is currently operating an Ireland West Knock – Birmingham service, confirmed that it would cease to operate the route from 10th June 2012, following decision by IAG to wind down the airline in September 2012.

Aer Arann Regional Interim Chief Executive Sean Brogan said: “We are delighted to add the Birmingham-Knock route to our network and to be operating into Ireland West Airport Knock. In addition to our services to Dublin, Cork and Shannon, this will be the fourth Aer Lingus Regional service available from Birmingham since our partnership with Aer Lingus began in 2010.”

Furthermore, we are delighted to be adding a new carrier, Aer Lingus Regional, to our airline network and we wish them every success on the new service.”
