Aer Arann has launched a new direct service from Donegal Airport to Glasgow Airport, beginning on 28 March and replacing the airline’s current Donegal to Glasgow-Prestwick route.

The new service will operate four days per week, up from the current three-times weekly service.

Glasgow Airport is situated just eight miles west of Glasgow city centre offering passengers more convenient access, and a recently announced £25 million investment at the airport will enhance the passenger experience there.

Welcoming the new service Aer Arann corporate affairs director, Andrew Kelly, remarked, “We are committed to offering our customers in Donegal and surrounding areas regional connectivity and direct access to major international hubs. With the direct route to Glasgow Airport we are responding to popular customer demand and we look forward to welcoming both new and existing passengers on this route in the coming weeks”.

This is the latest development for Aer Arann following the recent announcement that the airline has signed a franchise agreement with Aer Lingus to operate 12 routes between Ireland and the UK under the brand “Aer Lingus Regional”.
