Aer Arann scales down Dublin - Cork service...

Post by mikekilo » Wed Sep 21, 2005 1:43 pm

Aer Arann today said that it will cut the number of Cork-Dublin flights from nine to three per day when Ryanair begins operating on that route.

From November 24, Aer Arann will run only three return flights on the route, with the cheapest one-way fare of E29.99 excluding tax. Ryanair plans to begin operating three return flights on the same day with equivalent fares as low as 99 cent.

A spokesperson for Aer Arann said the move would not affect staff numbers in Cork in the short term, as the airline would continue to offer flights to Birmingham, Bristol, Southampton, Edinburgh and Belfast City.

running to the IOM - LPL 4 daily starting Nov. MAN also rumoured. IOM could turn into a substantial base for RE if they played their cards right methinks.

Any chance of further routes to Lorient like GWY nonstop or KIR? Pity they don't market WAT-GWY, or else transfer the stop to ORK because bus/train to Galway from Cork is brutal.

That's funny coz it says via WAT on the online timetable. Ho hum.

Anyone know what 3W's loads were like IOM-GWY? RE have just announced MAN 3x to go with DUB and LPL and if there was a demand it would link GWY with what looks like becoming a serious RE base.

Go further up the line there, the NW to Cork is twice as bad, although if they ever open the Western Rail Corridor, we might see Ballina-Limerick trains again!

it looks like MOL and his cork to dublin route vs CIE have another headstart because CIE are looking for 10% increase in prices which will bring the cork to dublin return price to 61.50,what a complete rip off.
