Ireland West Airport has today announced a new Aer Lingus , year-round, daily service to London Heathrow Airport.
Starting March 26th, Aer Lingus will operate daily flights to London Heathrow, London’s biggest and most well connected and closest airport to central London, serviced by the Heathrow Express train with a journey time of just 15 minutes to Paddington Station in Central London.
The new service will provide a major boost for the airport and the region as it is the first time in the airports 37-year history that the airport will be connected to one of Europe’s major international airport hubs.
As well as providing a daily service to Heathrow, this connectivity means customers can enjoy seamless connections via London Heathrow Airport to North America.
The new route looks set to boost inbound tourism to the West of Ireland.
It will replace the current Aer Lingus service to London Gatwick, which will cease operations on 25th March 2023. Customers already booked on this route will be automatically rebooked on a same day flight.
Joe Gilmore, Managing Director, Ireland West Airport told Midwest News Editor Teresa O’Malley that this is a major development for the region as it opens up key onward connectivity from IWAK….
