From today, Aer Lingus will welcome back a number of major US routes from its Dublin base for the first time since 2020, boosting US connectivity for UK customers with connections from Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, as well as Heathrow and Gatwick travelling through Aer Lingus’ hub at Dublin.

A wide range of popular US services will return this summer including Philadelphia (7th April), Los Angeles (12th May) and Seattle (7th July).

Philadelphia will return on 7th April with six flights per week, rising to daily from May and Chicago will operate a second flight five times weekly from 8th April - and for the first time ever a second daily flight to Washington DC will operate from 9th June.

In October Aer Lingus will resume its highly popular flights to the capital of the Sunshine State, Miami, from Dublin.

Critically, the start of Aer Lingus Regional routes and the resumption of the transatlantic routes from Dublin will increase choice for UK regional customers who can seamlessly connect onto Aer Lingus’ North American network via its Dublin Hub.
Further UK connections to North America from Bristol and Leeds Bradford, will follow from 15th April and Exeter and Newquay from 29th April via Dublin.

Aer Lingus will also introduce a second Chicago flight on 8th April, which will operate five times a week.

Connecting to North America with Aer Lingus via its Dublin hub, UK travellers can experience the benefit of US Immigration Pre-clearance before they depart allowing them to arrive into the US as domestic customers, avoiding any lengthy immigration queues.

Bill Byrne, Aer Lingus Executive Vice-President US, said: “Aer Lingus are excited to announce the resumption of a number of exciting US destinations this summer as we build back our connectivity to the US, connecting people from Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and London on to North America via Dublin.

“With the convenience of US Customs and Immigration pre-clearance at Dublin and Shannon, time spent connecting through both airports provides customers with a speedier journey overall as you arrive in the US as a domestic customer.’’

Aer Lingus customers can take in Boston’s breath-taking sights, absorb the cultures of New York City’s five boroughs and gleam in the glamour of Los Angeles or chase thrills at Orlando’s iconic theme parks.

UK travellers can fly on 12 transatlantic routes via Dublin, including New York JFK, Newark, Miami, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Washington DC, Seattle, Toronto and Philadelphia and to New York, JFK and Boston via Shannon.

The airline will be the only carrier offering direct flights between Ireland and West Coast USA with daily flights to San Francisco, as well as daily services to Los Angeles starting on 12 May and Seattle returning five times a week on 7th July.

Travelling to North America with Aer Lingus means customers can enjoy a more sustainable travel experience on Aer Lingus’ state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo LR which operates flights to Newark, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Toronto from Dublin and to New York JFK and Boston from Shannon.

Aer Lingus’ next generation sustainable aircraft, boasts greater fuel-efficiency with a 15% reduction in fuel burn and a 50% reduction in noise footprint, compared to previous generation aircraft.

The A321neo LR offers the latest innovations for customers, including on board Wi-Fi, LED mood lighting to help customers relax, as well as featuring an improved aerodynamic design with a single aisle.

Customers flying on all flights to North America with Aer Lingus will enjoy complimentary meals and drinks, endless hours of in-flight entertainment including the latest movie releases, TV boxsets, games and music.

Along with Wi-fi and the PressReader app which offers passengers over 7,000 digital newspapers & magazines via their smart device and US Customs and Border pre-clearance at both Dublin and Shannon airports.

To make travel easier, Aer Lingus has partnered with VeriFLY so that Aer Lingus customers can ensure all of their COVID-19 related documentation is verified before travel in the VeriFLY app.
