Monday 10th May: Aer Arann customers in Waterford are set to enjoy greater flexibility and frequency from May 30th with the introduction of additional London Luton and Galway flights.
The airline will offer an additional flight from Waterford to London Luton four days a week and the Waterford-Galway service will now operate every day except Saturday.
From May 30th flights to London Luton from Waterford will be available three times daily on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. The regular double daily service will continue to operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Flights from Waterford to London Luton start from €59 one way including taxes.
Flights to Galway from Waterford which will increase to six days per week from May 30th start from €29.99 one way including taxes.
Commenting on the new services Aer Arann Corporate Affairs Director Andrew Kelly said “We recognised the demand by passengers in Waterford for an extra Luton service. In addition, we noticed the strong load factors on the Waterford –Galway flights currently in operation and responded accordingly by adding these additional services.
The London Luton service from Waterford is one of our busiest routes and therefore we anticipate that the increased frequency will perform well. In addition, we believe that without a motorway, there is a need for a fast, accessible link between the south east and west of the country and we are filling that gap with these additional domestic services” he added.
Also commenting on the additional services Graham Doyle, Waterford Airport CEO said, “The move is big news for Waterford Airport, demonstrating the demand for additional services to London and to the west of Ireland.
As always we will be selling the concept of convenience for the people of the South East who can be at the airport in a very short period of time and can now avail of a service taking them to and from the West of Ireland in just 40 minutes six days per week and an option of eighteen return flights to London Luton per week”.
The new London Luton and Galway services are on sale from Wednesday May12th. For further information, flight times and to make a booking visit www.AerArann.com
