Aer Lingus yesterday celebrated one year of flights from Heathrow to Ireland West Airport Knock

Aer Lingus yesterday celebrated one year of flights from Heathrow to Ireland West Airport Knock, gateway to the West of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way.

Direct daily services from Ireland’s flag carrier first took off on 26 March 2023 with flights operated by an Airbus A320.

The new route has helped boost the local Irish economy thanks to the fast and frequent service, providing a gateway for the 86% of UK-based visitors heading to Ireland for a holiday, or to see family and friends*.

This year also marks 10 years since the official opening of the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, which attracts millions of visitors every year, eager to discover its dramatic 1,600-mile-long route, including hidden beaches, welcoming villages and the towering Cliffs of Moher.

Susanne Carberry, Chief Customer Officer at Aer Lingus said: “We are proud to mark this occasion celebrating one year of making the West of Ireland and the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way even easier to explore and navigate, with Aer Lingus’ direct flights from Heathrow to Ireland West Airport Knock.

“Since commencing, the route has continued to drive inbound tourism and we look forward to flying even more customers this summer as we provide our warm welcome from Aer Lingus.”
