Aer Lingus to begin additional flight on its transatlantic route
Ireland’s national flag carrier Aer Lingus recently announced it will be adding another aircraft to operate flights on its highly successful transatlantic route.
The airline has decided to begin additional Aer Lingus flights on transatlantic route after getting buoyed by the latest results showing that the airline’s long-haul routes have remained quite popular even after the effects of recession.
Aer Lingus in a statement said that the additional aircraft being deployed on transatlantic route would serve Orlando, Boston and Chicago.
The airline, while disclosing its operational results recently, said that its flights on long-haul destinations were 85.7 percent full. According to the airline, the flights on long-haul routes increased more than 8 percent this November as compared to the same month in 2011.
The airline announced that an additional aircraft to transatlantic routes would be added from March next year. With an extra aircraft, Aer Lingus would be operating four additional flights to Chicago, two flights to Boston and one flight to Orlando.
