Aer Lingus may introduce transatlantic flights from Cork - VIDEO
Long haul flights are performing well, says CEO
Aer Lingus has indicated that it may introduce a transatlantic route from Cork airport.
The Irish airline’s CEO, Christoph Mueller has said the company is considering introducing a an all year round service from Cork, Shannon, and Belfast to New York.
“Long-haul is performing extremely well,” Mueller told Aviation Week.
According to the magazinet the airline is considering bolstering it’s transatlantic fleet with a new aircraft Airbus’s A321neo.
The report states that Aer Lingus plans to add another aircraft to it’s long haul fleet by next year, by leasing an Airbus A330-200 from United Airlines. This would bring the airline’s long haul fleet to 11 aircrafts.
The additional aircraft would allow the airline to up frequencies on routes from Dublin to Boston and Chicago.
Aviation Week states: “with its lower capacity, the aircraft could enable the carrier to operate year-round services from Cork, Shannon and Belfast, Ireland, to New York.”
Earlier this week the Irish airline announced it was introducing four new services.
The new routes are from Dublin to Corfu, Dublin to Copenhagen, Shannon to Faro and Belfast to Palma.
The airlines also said it plans to add an additional 112,000 seats to its transatlantic schedule for next summer.
