The schedule is tailored to provide competitive travel options across the day for guests travelling on business or for leisure with prices starting from €44.99.

The leasing arrangement between our two airlines will see CityJet provide two Avro RJ85 aircraft, crew, maintenance, and insurance to Aer Lingus for the purpose of operating the Dublin-London City route.

The aircraft, in Aer Lingus livery, will be configured in single cabin layout, with guests enjoying Aer Lingus’ award-winning 4-Star SkyTrax service. From today, guests wishing to book a flight on the route should do so via aerlingus.com.
