Isle holidaymakers are in for a treat after a schedule of new flights were announced between Robin Hood Airport and Dublin.

A direct service has proven popular from the Finningley-based airport, since it was launched by Aer Lingus Regional in May.

The flights also feature connecting transatlantic routes to Boston, New York, Chicago and Toronto.

Aer Lingus Regional has now announced it’s winter schedule for the flights, which runs from October 25 to March 26.

Flights will operate five times a week at 10:50am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, as well as 3pm on Sundays, and return at 10:25am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and at 2.35pm on Sundays.

Chris Harcombe, head of aviation development at the airport, said: “The airport’s passengers can make use of onwards links to four North American cities, clearing US immigration in Dublin and therefore avoiding huge queues, so it’s no surprise that the route has been so successful and we’re excited to see it go from strength to strength. The airport and the region have already welcomed visitors from across Ireland and the USA thanks to this new route and look forward to building on this.”

Martin Saxton, chief commercial officer at Aer Lingus Regional, said: “We are delighted to operate our service between Doncaster and Dublin. Since launching the route in May of this year, it has proven very popular with passengers looking for an easy, convenient and great value means of travel between Doncaster and Dublin.

“Along with passengers flying direct to Dublin, many UK passengers are also availing of a wide range of convenient US bound connections via Dublin. This Dublin connection saves travellers hours of queuing in US airports by instead undergoing US customs and border pre-clearance protocol in Dublin Airport prior to boarding.”
