The new service is expected to provide a major boost for Ireland West 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.
