To the surprise of nobody, Virgin Atlantic today announced that it will cease its Aer Lingus operated Little Red UK Domestic operations next year. The London Heathrow – Manchester route will cease after 28th March 2015 and the London Heathrow – Aberdeen and London Heathrow – Edinburgh routes will cease after 26th September 2015.

This will result in four Aer Lingus A320s becoming available for Aer Lingus service.
