Emerald Airlines, exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional, announced the launch of two new routes from Dublin base to Aberdeen and Southampton operating daily with ATR72-600 aircraft from the start of IATA Winter schedule on 30th October.

With convenient timings and cost-effective flights, we strongly believe these connections will be warmly welcomed by both business and leisure travellers. We look forward to a busy winter ahead!. The new routes form part of Emerald Airlines’ wider expansion strategy, which will come to fruition over the coming months; seeing the delivery of five additional aircraft, adding further capacity, and increasing frequencies.”
