Aer Lingus Regional takes over bmibaby route between Ireland West Airport Knock and Birmingham Airport
Aer Lingus Regional launched two international routes from airports in western Ireland in the last week, using Aer Arann’s ATR72 aircraft. From Knock (NOC), the airline took over the route to Birmingham (BHX) in the UK that just was dropped by soon-to-close-down LCC bmibaby. Flights started on 11 June and are operated daily. This is Aer Lingus’ second route to Knock after its London Gatwick flights. On 9 June, the airline began flying once a week between Shannon (SNN) and Rennes (RNS) in Brittany, northwestern France. Flights operate seasonally until 1 September.
