Aer Lingus announce a cosy island getaway destination for next summer

A potential Christmas gift idea?

The season of giving is just around the corner, and if you're anything like us, you're already racking your brain to figure out the perfect gift.


Alright, in all honesty, if you're anything like this writer, you'll leave it to the last minute and pray that your family loves bath sets and gift vouchers. But I digress!

If you're looking for a unique getaway next year, you'll be hard pressed to find one as cosy as a trip to the Channel Islands.

Emerald Airlines, operator of Aer Lingus Regional services, has released its Summer 2023 schedule, with a total of 23 routes, including 13 from Dublin and 10 from Belfast.

One of these routes include a new connection between Belfast City Airport and Jersey, one of the Channel Islands.


The other is between Belfast and Newquay in Cornwall.

Both locations are well renowned for their natural landscape, with Newquay being voted one of the top seaside towns in the UK.

Jersey is only a 90 minute ferry away from France as well, perfect for those looking to explore mainland Europe while also getting a taste of island life.


“As we enter into a busy Winter season, we are thrilled to be announcing our Summer 2023 schedule, which will see the extension of a number of our Winter routes, including Dublin-Aberdeen and Dublin-Southampton," said Ciarán Smith, Head of Commercial at Emerald Airlines.

“We are also pleased to be bolstering our Belfast schedule with the addition of two sought-after routes; Newquay and Jersey. We anticipate these new routes to be popular amongst those travelling for both business and leisure purposes, and we look forward to providing that increased connectivity to and from Belfast.”

The new Aer Lingus Regional summer schedule is set to commence from next March.

Passengers can book flights now via the Aer Lingus website.
