Aer Lingus Shannon-Heathrow re-opening solely due to cost cuts
The Chief Executive of Aer Lingus Dermot Mannion has rejected claims that political pressure forced the former State airline to re-introduce its service from Shannon to Heathrow.
Twice-daily flights will resume on March 29th next.
Special one way introductory fares of ?19.99 are expected to attract a large number of customers from day one.
Aer Lingus boss Mannion said the new cost cutting plan at the airline has made today's announcement possible.
