Aer Lingus’ First Non-Stop Flight From Manchester To Barbados Takes Off

Share this:

Aer Lingus’ first transatlantic service from the UK took to the skies on Wednesday, 20 October with the departure of the airline’s first ever non-stop direct flight from Manchester to Barbados.

The brand new EI 31 service departed from Manchester Airport marking a major new milestone in the Irish flag-carrier’s services from the UK. To start the celebrations in true Barbadian style, customers checking in for their flights with the Irish flag carrier were treated to a live performance from local Barbadian steel band, Band One.

Travellers in the North can now enjoy two weekly flights to Barbados from Manchester with Aer Lingus every Wednesday and Saturday until the end of April, as well as an additional weekly flight each Friday from 30 October.

Aer Lingus offers highly competitive fares in both Business Class and Economy Class on its transatlantic services operating from Manchester, with fares starting from £199 each way, as part of a return journey. Customers can also book the flights as part of a holiday package, thanks to the airline’s new partnership with British Airways Holidays.

And from December 1 Aer Lingus will begin operating its first ever non-stop direct flights from Manchester to New York’s JFK airport, just in time for the peak winter travel season. From 01 December 2021, Aer Lingus will be flying daily from Manchester to New York, and from 11 December 2021, five times a week to Orlando.
