Aer Lingus Regional introduced new flights to Dublin from Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield Airport yesterday (March 29th).
The operation is a franchise agreement between Aer Lingus and regional airline Aer Arann and offers passengers the opportunity to connect to onward cheap flights to New York and Boston.
Paul Schutz, Aer Arann’s chief executive, said the carriers have come together to create "a customer focussed-schedule with increased frequency".
"Direct flights to Doncaster Sheffield combined with new connecting services to the US offers a significant boost to both business and the tourism industry at a time when it is badly needed," he explained.
Aer Lingus Regional is expected to develop a number of feeder flights to Ireland from the UK, all of which will be linked to transatlantic connections.
Flights to Doncaster Sheffield will touch down at 11:15 (BST) and depart for Dublin at 11:40.
March has been a busy month for Aer Lingus after the airline commenced twice-daily flights to London Gatwick from Cork Airport on March 6th.
