Aer Lingus has announced plans to increase the number of cheap flights it offers between Edinburgh and Dublin.
The low-cost airline will add extra flights to Edinburgh and maintain its route from Dublin to Glasgow.
Seven flights to Edinburgh from Dublin will operate when the new service is added and passengers will be also able to choose cheap flights to Glasgow on every day of the week.
Edna Corneille, corporate affairs director at Aer Lingus told the Herald that the airline is keen to show its commitment to Scottish flights, despite the current economic climate.
"We would not keep flying between Scotland and Ireland if the business was not there," she said, suggesting that passenger demand on the two routes remains strong.
Ms Corneille also commented that Scottish passengers will be able to connect with flights to New York and Boston from Aer Lingus’ Dublin hub.
Meanwhile, the carrier recently announced that it would add flights to Geneva from Cork as part of its winter schedule.
The flights are aimed at customers taking ski breaks and will start in December.
