Travelers from Ireland will be able to connect to the United States even more than before with additional travel options available now. Here’s yet another opportunity for both Irish and U.S. passengers to take advantage of the newly-introduced flights to Newark Liberty from Dublin and conveniently connect to the two countries. The year-round service on Dublin-Newark Liberty route was launched on September 1, 2016 and would be operated daily. The flights would be operated with the help of an Airbus A330-202 aircraft.
With the launch of flights on Dublin-Newark Liberty route, Aer Lingus has undertaken the largest expansion of its transatlantic network ever since it first launched its inaugural service in 1958. The Dublin-Newark Liberty route will now become the airline’s second new route to be launched this summer.
Aer Lingus has also announced that it will be launching its third new route between Dublin and Hartford after few weeks. The airline will be operating four-time weekly flights services on the route. It may be recalled that it was only in May last year that the airline started operating direct flight services between Los Angeles and Dublin.
Flying out of Dublin Airport with Aer Lingus has its own advantages too, particularly to the United States. The customers traveling to the United States will now be able to pass through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection services at Dublin Airport itself.
Aer Lingus has said it will continue to grow its transatlantic operations and would bring in three new transatlantic aircrafts to its fleet during the coming summer schedule. The airline has also said that it would be adding two more aircrafts in 2017 for conducting transatlantic operations smoothly.
Declan Kearney, Aer Lingus’ Director of Communications, said, “It’s a matter of great delight that new direct flights between Dublin and Newark Liberty have been launched. With the new service, the airline will now be offering four flights to New York daily. Also, the airline would be operating a total of 28 daily flights services across the Atlantic by the end of September 2016.”
