Aer Arann has introduced connecting flights to Cork from Donegal, Derry, Galway and Knock Ireland West via Dublin.
From as little as €45 one way, including taxes, business and leisure passengers can now travel throughout the country saving hours of additional driving time in the process.
“These new flights open up the possibility for short but important business and leisure trips that would otherwise involve lengthy and often frustrating car journeys,” Andrew Kelly, director of Corporate Affairs with the company said.
By opting for a connecting flight rather than driving, customers could save significant travel time.
Air travel passengers received more when choosing to fly with Aer Arann, including shorter check in times, free airport check in, free baggage allowance up to 15kg for checked luggage and up to 7kg for carry on luggage.
Aer Arann operates over 600 flights per week, across 40 routes in this country to the UK and Europe.
Passenger numbers have grown from 12,000 in its first year to 1.1m in 2006.
The company has engineering bases in Cork, Galway and the most recently opened Waterford base creating up to 45 jobs.
The company’s excellence in customer service was recognised in 2006 by receiving the Palme D’Or European regional airline award for sustained excellence.
