As part of its new winter schedule, Aer Lingus has announced that it will run extra flights between Dublin and London Gatwick. From 30th October, the airline will provide six flights per day between the two airports, an increase from the four flights on offer last winter.
The new 06.40 flight will be the first departure by any airline from Dublin to London Gatwick and, in turn, the first morning departure from Gatwick at 06.50 will be the first by any airline from London Gatwick to Dublin.
An extra evening flight in both directions will add more choice for business commuters and those travelling at peak times. There will also be a lunchtime flight at 12.55 in addition to the existing 10.50 and 14.50 departures.
The new schedule increases the number of Aer Lingus flights between Dublin and London to 18 per day, a greater frequency than any other airline and increases Aer Lingus’s capacity for passengers on this service by more than 50%.
