Airlines in new tie-up

AIRLINES Aer Arann and Aer Lingus have agreed to expand their franchise agreement.

Aer Arann will operate all of its services between Ireland and the UK, France and the Isle of Man under the Aer Lingus Regional brand from March 25.

The routes moving to the brand include those between Waterford and London Southend, Manchester and London Luton and those between Dublin and the Isle of Man and Kerry.

Combined with the existing 21 Aer Lingus Regional routes, the move significantly increases Aer Lingus' presence in the Ireland-UK market.
