Aer Lingus reveals the biggest ever capacity to North America in the summer 2020 schedule, including increased frequency and fleet upgrades, with more flights to Orlando, Miami, Seattle and more.
Aer Lingus, the only four-star Irish airline's summer 2020 schedule will see their greatest ever capacity to North America thanks to increased frequency and fleet upgrades.
The summer 2020 schedule will see 1.9 million seats on sale to transatlantic destinations. Orlando, Florida will move from a four-flights-per-week service to a six-flights-per-week service. The service to Miami, Florida, will increase from two to three flights per week service and the Dublin to Seattle route will move to a daily service in summer 2020, increasing from five flights per week.
Fleet upgrades will also see some direct routes enjoy greater capacity next year, such as Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Minneapolis St. Paul, which will soon be serviced by the larger Airbus A330 aircraft.
In addition, by summer 2020 Aer Lingus will have replaced the full Boeing 757 fleet with four news Airbus A321 neo LR aircraft, which will operate with over 20 percent greater fuel efficiency.
Commenting on the launch of the 2020 summer schedule, David Shepherd, Chief Commercial Officer, Aer Lingus, said “Transatlantic growth continues to be our priority, and this is being realized in 2020 with the increased frequency and capacity on many direct routes from Dublin. Not only does this strengthen Ireland’s connectivity with the United States but creates a greater, more efficient connection via Dublin for our neighbors in UK and Europe.”
