Since joining IAG in 2015, Aer Lingus has launched eight new direct transatlantic services to North America including Los Angeles, Newark, Hartford, Miami, Philadelphia, Seattle and most recently Montreal and Minneapolis-St. Paul, marking the largest ever transatlantic expansion in the airline’s history.

Summer 2019 Aer Lingus will offer more 3 million seats on its long-haul network.

Aer Lingus continues to drive its strategy of expanding the airline’s Dublin Airport base into a major European transatlantic gateway. The airline offers seamless connections from Europe and the UK to its 15 destinations across North America.

Connecting via Dublin, Aer Lingus guests can experience the benefit of US Immigration Preclearance before they depart which allows them to arrive into the US like a domestic passenger, avoiding any lengthy queues.
