Just in time for ‘The Gathering,’ American Airlines has announced a new service between Dublin and New York.
The new service will begin June 2013 and will be serviced by a Boeing 757. The news is a huge boost for Irish tourism on the eve of The Gathering, the Irish government’s major attempt to bring the Diaspora back home in 2012.
Bookings on the new service can be made starting November 6th. The round trip fare is $620.
The flight will depart Dublin at 9.A.M making it the earliest flight to the U.S. available.
Passengers will use the customs pre-clearance facility at Dublin, saving major time on entry into the United States.
"This announcement is further confirmation of American's long-term plan to enhance its global network. We have over 550 new aircraft on order and we are responding to demand in each of our existing markets: growing our network and increasing frequencies where our customers require it," said Graham Bell, American's Sales Director UK and Ireland.
Tourism Ireland warmly welcomed the news..
"As an island, direct, convenient and competitive access services are critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism," Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland said.
"Tourism Ireland is committed to working with American Airlines, Dublin Airport and other tourism interests, through co-operative marketing, to drive demand for this new service - as we work with other carriers and partners to promote and help maintain vital routes and services to the island," he added.
American Airlines currently has six flights weekly between Dublin and Chicago’s O’Hare Airport .
“Next summer, Dublin Airport will have 12 daily scheduled flights to 9 different US airports," DAA Interim Chief Executive, Oliver Cussen said. "That puts Dublin Airport ahead of its European competitors such as Manchester and Gatwick airports in terms of US connectivity."
