Aer Lingus restarts flights from Bristol to Dublin

Aer Lingus will resume flights to and from Bristol to Dublin airport from August 1.

Earlier operated by Aer Lingus Regional, the route from the West Country will operate five days a week, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, with fares starting from £39.99 each way, including taxes.

Ireland reopened its doors for travel earlier this month and is the first country in Europe where fully vaccinated Brits can visit without the need of COVID-19 tests into or out of the country. There will also be no self-isolation required, if fully vaccinated.

Upon arrival in Ireland, all Brits are needed to show full vaccination proof, such as their NHS App COVID Pass and a vaccination status letter or their NHS vaccine paper card. Guests without these will need to show evidence of a negative PCR test within 72 hours before arriving and quarantine for 14 days or a minimum of five days if they prove negative with a second PCR test by the Health Service Executive in Ireland on day five. Children under the age of 12 travelling with vaccinated parents/ guardians will not need to take a PCR test prior to travelling to Ireland. 

Peter O’Neill, Aer Lingus chief operations officer, said: “We are delighted to recommence flights from Bristol and welcome back our British customers on board now that travel restrictions have been relaxed, reconnecting friends and families that have been kept apart for too long. We are looking forward to serving our customers once again and providing them with a warm Aer Lingus welcome from airports across the UK.”

Earlier this year, Aer Lingus introduced a range of new safety measures in line with the guidance provided by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention & Control). These include mandatory wearing of face masks at all times for everyone, social distancing is to be maintained at check in and boarding gates, during boarding and disembarking aircraft.
