Aer Lingus operates Ireland West Airport - London Heathrow inaugural service

                                                                 This afternoon the inaugural Aer Lingus flight EIN916, operated by an Airbus A320, registered EI-DEK msn 2399 touching down at 12:44pm at Ireland West Airport from Heathrow Airport. Aer Lingus will operate daily flights to London Heathrow on a year-round basis. This new service is another milestone in IWAK’s history as it’s the first time the airport will be connected to one of Europe’s major international airport hubs, London’s biggest and most well-connected airport, on a year-round basis. The new route will boost inbound tourism to the West of Ireland given the proximity of Ireland West Airport to the Wild Atlantic Way and the huge spotlight on the west of Ireland following the box-office hit The Banshees of Inisherin.  Aer Lingus CEO Lynne Embleton said “The west of Ireland has so much to offer as a tourist destination with the Wild Atlantic Way and most recently as the filming location for Oscar-nominated The Banshee
