Aer Lingus

Plan your Winter holidays quick.

Aer Lingus has unveiled its largest ever winter schedule yet, including 350 extra transatlantic flights with 300,000 extra seats.

Aer Lingus will operate 3 flights per week to Miami, Florida, a new long-haul destination for winter. Bilbao, Spain is the airline’s new winter short-haul destination with a three times weekly service from Dublin.

To celebrate this year’s winter schedule, Aer Lingus is offering €50 off round trips to North America, flying direct to 11 destinations from Ireland which include Boston, Chicago, New York JFK, Newark, Hartford, Orlando, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington and Toronto, as well as Miami.

Mike Rutter, Chief Operating Officer, Aer Lingus said:

“This Winter is our biggest yet with considerable expansion of our long-haul and European networks. The increasing recognition that the Aer Lingus Dublin Hub is the fastest, cheapest and least hassle way to visit North America is underpinned by a further 13% increase in transatlantic seats from Dublin this winter.

“The Aer Lingus Dublin Hub is now the year round choice for North Atlantic travellers whether they are travelling for leisure or business purposes. This premier position will be underscored by our new route to Miami and the increased frequency to our California gateways.

“While summer is traditionally the time of year to jet off, winter is certainly gathering pace and this year’s schedule boasts great value and choice across the UK, Europe and North America.

“Our 2017 Winter short-haul network marks significant investment in key UK routes such as London and Birmingham as well as European cities and winter sun destinations.”
