With up to seven flights weekly during summer months, Aer Lingus Regional passengers can now do pre-clearance in Dublin. This service is designed to save time and hassle for Cornwall passengers on their transatlantic travel and offer them an affordable, time efficient and convenient route to the US, be that for business or pleasure.”
The managing director at Cornwall Airport Newquay, Al Titterington, said: “Expanding our route network through cost effective, indirect routes further enhances the destination options available to those wishing to fly from Cornwall and the added bonus of the Immigration pre-clearance in Dublin will be of real benefit to passengers using this route to access North America.
