A new route is going to be launched from Leeds Bradford Airport to Cork next year.

Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, will fly up to three times weekly between Yorkshire and Ireland, flying on a Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: "Leeds Bradford has been working closely with both Aer Lingus Regional and Cork Airport over the last 12 months to see the reintroduction of this important service to SW Ireland.

"We are confident that the Cork route will see strong two-way traffic flows and it is especially pleasing to see the growth of Aer Lingus services after the launch of their Dublin services only last winter."

Martin Saxton, Chief Commercial Officer of Stobart Air, added: "We are very pleased to announce the addition of a new Aer Lingus Regional route from Leeds Bradford to Cork.

"Choice in regional connectivity is paramount for our business and leisure customers and key to our growth.

"Together with both Leeds Bradford and Cork airports, we look forward to working together to successfully launch and and grow this important new route."

Flights will start on 15 March and more information is available at www.aerlingus.com
