Following Norwegian’s decision to stop its transatlantic flights from Ireland to the United States, Irish rival Aer Lingus has announced special autumn fares to North America, starting at €139.
Aer Lingus currently has 16 direct routes from Ireland to North America, flying to destinations such as New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, Washington, Chicago, Newark, Hartford, Philadelphia, Seattle as well as a recently released route to Minneapolis-St Paul.
“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,” Aer Lingus Chief Operating Officer Mike Rutter said.
“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 special autumn prices cover a number of routes from Dublin and Shannon.
