Aer Lingus has announced that flights from Bristol to Dublin will restart today, Sunday 1st August.

New covid testing centre opens at London St Pancras
Collinson has opened a new covid testing centre at London St Pancras railway station.
As well as offering the standard range of antigen and PCR tests, it can also sell you a takeaway video testing kit (basically a Qured clone) which you can use whilst away in order to generate a ‘fit to fly’ certificate for your return trip.
The facility is on The Grand Terrace, next to the champagne bar.
As well as serving Eurostar passengers, it is also an option for Luton Airport passengers who are transiting through St Pancras.
You can book at collinsontest.com. The standard British Airways Collinson discount codes should work even though this is not an airport facility.
