The extra seats are being added to meet the demand of rugby supporters flying to and from Dublin for the England versus Ireland RBS 6 Nations game on Sunday 10 February.

The airline operates three daily return flights from London Southend to Dublin Airport.

Launched in May 2012, Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Aer Arann, has flown almost 50,000 passengers on this popular route.

Commenting, Simon Fagan, Chief Commercial Officer, Aer Arann said “We are always looking at ways to improve our customers’ experience by offering more choice, great value and further convenience. We are responding to increased demand by adding extra seats to the London Southend Airport to Dublin Airport route. This move will ensure choice for our customers flying to Dublin for the rugby.”

He added “The London Southend to Dublin route is a popular route on our network for both business and leisure passengers. We have seen steady growth in traffic since its launch last May, with passengers benefiting from an easy, efficient and accessible connection between Dublin and London.  Equally, with its direct rail link and fast and frequent train services to Liverpool Street Station, London Southend Airport has proved to be a convenient option for flying to London.”
