Aer Lingus has performed its inaugural flight from Manchester to Barbados. Apart from Barbados, the airline will start flying to New York, JFK and Orlando.
Radarbox.com reports that the first flight departed Manchester on 20 October 2021 at 10:46. It had the call sign ‘Green Flight 931’, and the aircraft used was the carrier’s sole A330-300.
Aer Lingus will be flying to Barbados three times weekly. From 1 December 2021, it will also start servicing the New York route daily, and from 11 December 2021, it will operate five flights a week to Orlando.
Speaking at the launch, Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said:
“It’s incredibly pleasing to see Aer Lingus’ inaugural flight to Barbados take off from Manchester Airport this morning. Not only is it great to see the airline put this route on at Manchester, but it is also a huge boost for the region with Aer Lingus choosing us as its first UK base for transatlantic flights.”
