Bristol Airport, Aer Lingus celebrate milestoneBristol Airport and Aer Lingus have recently celebrated a milestone moment.

The travel hub and airline last week (May 27th) marked the 75th anniversary of the company flying from the facility.

Aer Lingus' UK manager, Keith Tann, was given a Bristol blue glass gift to celebrate the occasion by Robery Sinclair, chief executive officer of the travel hub.

Mr Sinclair said: "Aer Lingus has a rich history in this region, and we wanted to show our appreciation for the contribution the airline has made over the years in making business and leisure travel between Ireland and the south-west convenient and affordable to many thousands of people on both sides of the Irish Sea."

Aer Lingus launched their first service from Dublin to Bristol in 1936 using a De Havilland 84 Dragon, which seated six people. It landed at Whitchurch airfield, where Bristol Airport was based at the time.

Currently, the airline flies to a number of Irish destinations, including Cork, Dublin and Shannon, from Bristol Airport.
