Aer Lingus is to switch its Shannon to Heathrow service to the earlier time of 7.30am from March 26.
The airline said the earlier departure would offer enhanced business connectivity from the region. Aer Lingus Director of Communications Declan Kearney said: “We’re delighted to announce a more business-friendly schedule for the Shannon to Heathrow service. The change to our departure time from Shannon will also increase the onward connection options with our partner airlines.
Matthew Thomas, CEO, Shannon Group said: “The schedule change by Aer Lingus brings the morning departure forward by one hour and 20 minutes, giving our business customers the benefit of a fuller day in London whilst also providing more efficient connectivity options beyond Heathrow to Europe and the rest of the world.
“This is a very welcome announcement for the business community along the western seaboard. In addition the return flight from Heathrow now lands in Shannon at 11.15am with the last departure to Heathrow moving to 7.00pm, from the earlier 5.25pm, allowing those visiting the region on business a longer business day also. It also creates greater outbound leisure options to a range of international destinations serviced from Heathrow with 80 airlines flying to 185 destinations in 84 countries.”
