Aer Lingus announce €139 flights to the US in response to Norwegian cancelling routes
The fares are available between October and November.
Aer Lingus has announced that it is launching a special Autumn sale on flights to the US with fares beginning from €139.
The news comes after Norwegian announced it would be ending its transatlantic routes because they're not "commercially viable".
Aer Lingus currently has 16 routes from Ireland to North America and has launched seven new direct transatlantic services to Los Angeles, Newark, Hartford, Miami, Philadelphia, Seattle and Minneapolis-St. Paul in the last four years.
“We seek to operate in a competitive environment offering our guests value and award-winning service," Aer Lingus Chief Operating Officer Mike Rutter said.
"While the aviation industry is faced with many challenges at present, at Aer Lingus we remain focused on continuing to operate our extensive European and North American networks to service the needs of our guests.
"We’re proud to have connected Ireland to North America for more than 60 years and wish to reassure our Irish guests that we’re planning for the next 60 with more new routes to come. The demand for travel to North America continues to grow and having launched our latest Autumn fares, there’s no better time for our Irish travellers to jet off.”
