Aer Lingus returns to the Twin Cities

Monday, 29 Apr, 2024 0

Aer Lingus has resumed Minneapolis flights from Dublin Airport for the first time since the pandemic. 

The restart marks the full restoration of the airline’s pre-pandemic North American network.

Aer Lingus will now offer four weekly flights between Dublin and Minneapolis St. Paul, operated on the airline’s widebody Airbus A330 aircraft.

Minneapolis flights have been timed for easy connections to and from the airline’s 15 destinations in the UK, including London Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh.

Nonstop Minneapolis flights first launched in July 2019, but was paused less than a year later due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul ‘Twin Cities’ have strong business ties with Ireland, particularly in the biomedical and healthcare sectors.

Reid Moody, Aer Lingus Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Aer Lingus is delighted to welcome the return of Minneapolis-St. Paul to our North American route network.”

“There has been a noticeable demand from our passengers for the reinstatement of this route following the temporary pause due to the pandemic.”

Currently, almost half of booked passengers from Minneapolis St. Paul to Dublin plan to connect at Dublin, with top destinations including London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Barcelona, and Berlin.
