Aer Lingus announces major Atlantic expansion, San Francisco, Toronto routes
Shannon to be year-round destination, ten flights a day from US and Canada
To support the operation of the new routes, Aer Lingus will wet lease three Boeing 757 aircraft from ASL Aviation Group. The aircraft will be configured with an economy and business class cabin. Business travellers will continue to enjoy the same great level of service; with gourmet meals, sleeper seats and an extensive in-flight entertainment selection.
Speaking at the announcement Hugh Flynn, Chief Executive ASL Aviation Group said: “We are delighted to partner with Aer Lingus in bringing renowned excellent service to increasing numbers of business and leisure passengers on new and existing routes. ASL Aviation Group enjoys a world-class excellent reputation for safety, reliability and quality. We are a global company, with almost 90 aircraft operating all over the world under our own brand and for leading airlines, and we are proud to work with Ireland’s national airline. We believe the combination of two prominent Irish aviation companies brings a competitive dimension to the market and significantly increases economic opportunity for Ireland.”
The success of Aer Lingus’ transatlantic operation in recent years is in no small part due to its revised network strategy which has brought major increases in connecting passengers, particularly at Dublin airport. For the continued growth of Dublin as a connecting hub and the success of our increased services from Shannon, the expansion of the U.S Customs and Border Protection service is an absolute necessity.
