Aer Lingus wont be doing a service to BOH. As stated they ran DUB service a few years back and could not make the route work,and no Ryanair on the same route then not like now.

Maybe they see it as a feeder to their transatlantic routes..... remember, Dublin has pre-clearance, unlike LHR, so could very well be attractive to both the VFR and business markets. Additionally, you can avoid the chaotic "shopping mall" experience of LHR.

This surely would be the only explanation for it, could prove to be a great move and a nice addition to BOH if happened.

Really donít want to be downer on this one but they tried all of this a few years ago now , even launched the pre customs clearance and sold onward flights to the States . It just didnít happen and loads were poor on the ATR s

I cant really see what has changed , Ryanair hate to say it are the winners on this route and there is no room for another carrier

Aer Lingus is the wrong airline for Bournemouth. Itís perfect for Southampton along with all the other regional or full service carriers.
Bournemouthís future can and should be low cost.

From the Airport Facebook page

We've got two winter warmers for you for this time next year - destination announcements here tomorrow (Thursday).


Devil in the Detail ? Doesn't say New, so assuming a old route revisited but wouldn't put Dublin (rumoured ) in a Winter Warmer category !

May be TUI related.

All sounds very comical, maybe is no actual announcement at all.

Agree with Markeyd, Cape Verde has been rumoured for a while. As regards Aer Lingus, Their strategy is connecting Europe to US, reaffirmed recently by IAG. I agree its unlikely EI at BOH but not impossible. I always thought RYR would end up feeding EI Long haul, so more likely to see frequency increase to DUB by RYR

Ryanair to EI is self transfer and involves going landside to collect bags, then transfer to T2 and check them in again, whilst EI operate from T2 so far less hassle. Self-transfer carries risks if there are weather or operational delays..... not good if you are on a basic fare and miss the EI flight

The additional aircraft shared with Exeter is for Summer 2020. 'Winter warmers' suggest we are talking about new routes for Winter 2020/21. The TUI aircraft is doing Paphos on Wednesdays this winter and I thought it positioned to Gatwick on Friday night to carry out Saturday flights from there. I guess this could change for next winter.

Apologies, I missed that it was winter. Yes, youíre right with that, PFO on Wed and is idle on Sat, but will possibly go to LGW again when the ski season kicks in.

The aircraft wonít be free on Wednesdays as PFO will still operate and unlikely a new destination will be added when it takes a break from Dec-Feb.

More good news from TUI is the return of Sharm el Sheik

This will be operated on a Saturday throughout the winter 2020 / 21 period

Not sure what the other destination will be but its great to see some steady growth appear each year
