Sunshine destinations like Tenerife, Lanzarote, Malaga and Alicante are always incredibly popular and great for winter sun holidays. Dublin is also one of our most popular routes so with increased frequency even more people from the North East will be able to experience a wonderful city, and we look forward to welcoming even more passengers from Ireland into the North East.”
