Tuesday, 21 Nov, 2022 0

Irish carrier Aer Lingus has increased the number of flights to the US by 236% since US borders reopened a year ago.

In November 2021, the Irish carrier operated 141 flights to the US, but this soared to 473 flights by this November.

Seat capacity also surged by nearly 90,000.

Aer Lingus has returned to pre-pandemic flight levels for the Thanksgiving holiday.

In November 2021, the airline operated just six routes to the US, from Dublin to New York JFK, Newark, Chicago, Washington, Orlando and Boston.

This November, the carrier operates 150% more US routes (15) from its hubs in Dublin, Shannon and Manchester.

Destinations include Miami, Seattle and San Francisco.

By next summer, the Irish carrier will operate 16 routes to the US, bringing back its Dublin to Hartford CT service.

In addition Aer Lingus is launching a new service from Dublin to Cleveland, Ohio.
