Aer Lingus Regional services commence between Exeter and Dublin, with seamless onward connections to the USA

Thanks to Emerald Airlines and Aer Lingus, Exeter Airport is celebrating the launch of flights to the USA and Canada, along with increased connectivity to Dublin. Emerald Airlines, exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional, will be operating the Exeter-Dublin routes that connect seamlessly with Aer Lingus’ transatlantic network from Dublin.

For the first time from Exeter passengers can now fly to New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington and Toronto, via Dublin. It means they can board a flight in Exeter at 9.10am and be in New York in time for dinner the same day.

Passengers flying to the US can buy a single ticket which includes baggage transfer and allows them to avail of the US Immigration Pre-clearance at Dublin Airport before they fly.

Dublin Airport is one of only a few airports outside North America with a US pre-clearance facility. Inbound passengers are treated as domestic arrivals in the US, and so avoid any lengthy immigration queues when they land stateside, simply pick up their bags and go.

Exeter Airport managing director, Stephen Wiltshire, said: “We’re thrilled to see the start of flights from Exeter to North America via Dublin. They open up a range of transatlantic destinations and regional air travel to Ireland for leisure and business passengers. We’re also seeing overseas bookings from people in Ireland and North America keen to explore Devon and the South West. So we expect the new route to be a boost for inbound tourism as well.”

Ciarán Smith, Head of Commercial at Emerald Airlines, said: “This is an exciting day for us at Emerald Airlines, as it is the very first time that Aer Lingus Regional will be servicing flights between Exeter and Dublin. We’re delighted to be bringing more choice, convenience, and terrific value for both regional and transatlantic air travel from Exeter Airport and look forward to the success of this route.”
