THE luck of the Irish must be rubbing off on Scotland as travellers can now enjoy extra flights from Glasgow Airport to Dublin with Aer Lingus.

The airline's decision will see additional trips to the Emerald Isle between Monday and Friday. 

The Irish carrier will increase from five to six flights and boost capacity by an additional 26,000 seats from April. 

Flight times for this additional Glasgow Dublin service will see flights departing from Glasgow at 9.30am and from Glasgow to Dublin at 10.50am.

Glasgow Airport’s head of aviation, Paul White, said: “The additional week-day flight brings a 17% increase on what is a hugely-popular service. This is tremendous news for passengers travelling between both Glasgow and Dublin, whether it is for business purposes or to enjoy a city break in each destination.

“The addition of this service also guarantees greater choice and flexibility for passengers making onward connections to a number of North American destinations from Dublin.

“The Republic of Ireland’s capital city remains one of our busiest routes with more than 170,000 passengers making the short trip across the Irish Sea via Aer Lingus in 2019. Likewise, Glasgow continues to be a very popular destination for Irish visitors, so this latest announcement is welcome news indeed.”

The additional flights start on Monday 6 April and are on sale now. Visit for more information.
