With that and potential new destinations in mind, Aer Lingus have announced flights to two new North American destinations - Montreal in Canada and Minneapolis in Minnesota.

This news means that you can now fly to 15 locations in the USA and Canada via Aer Lingus.

The two new destinations will add a quarter of a million additional seats every year to Aer Lingus' transatlantic network, which already comprises 2.8 million seats annually between Ireland and North America.

Both of the routes will be available in the summer of 2019.

Speaking at the launch of Aer Lingus’ new transatlantic routes, Stephen Kavanagh, Aer Lingus CEO said: “Today we are pleased to announce two new transatlantic routes from our Dublin Hub with daily direct service to Montreal and Minneapolis-St Paul commencing in summer 2019.

"These destinations each have a rich heritage, vibrant culture and much to offer visitors travelling for business or leisure.

"Aer Lingus continues to deliver on its ambition to be the leading value carrier across the North Atlantic, adding new routes and travel options between Ireland, Europe, the USA and Canada, bringing increased connectivity, growing Irish employment and supporting international trade and economic growth.”
