Aer Arann replaces Ryanair on Blackpool?Dublin
Blackpool International Airport has announced that Aer Arann is to provide service to Dublin from Monday 5 January 2009. The award-winning regional carrier picks up the route from Ryanair, which withdrew from Blackpool recently.
“We are delighted that Aer Arann is keen to work in partnership with the airport to develop new routes here,” remarked the airport's chief executive David Kershaw. “The Dublin route is popular throughout the year and we have worked very hard to secure a replacement for the service.”
Aer Arann’s CEO-designate Paul Schutz welcomed the new addition to the airline’s network. “This demonstrates the commitment of Aer Arann to provide quality and reliable air services linking regional airports with major urban centres,” he commented. “The strength of Aer Arann is our ability, as people become more discerning about how they spend their money on air travel, to provide easy and direct access to the regions with a desirable high quality product at affordable prices.”
A special introductory fare is offered on the service of £29.99 one way inclusive of taxes.
