Ireland’s flagship carrier Aer Lingus recently announced it will be launching daily flights to Newark Liberty from Dublin starting September 2016. The airline also said that it will also begin its flights services to Hartford in Connecticut as well during the same month next year.
Media reports also revealed that the premier Irish carrier would be re-launching its flights to Los Angeles from Dublin in May 2016. The flights on Los Angeles-Dublin route would be operated five times per week.
According to the reports, the flights services on the three transatlantic routes – Dublin-Newark Liberty, Dublin-Hartford and Dublin-Los Angeles – would lead to an increase of 17 percent in the airline’s long-haul capacity. The airline will deploy Airbus A330 aircrafts to operate flight services on Newark Liberty-Dublin and Los Angeles-Dublin routes. However, the Hartford-Dublin route will be served with the help of a Boeing 757 aircraft.
A spokesperson of Aer Lingus while providing details about the re-launch of Dublin-Los Angeles service said that flights on the route will start operating from May 4, 2016. The flights on the route will be conducted with the help of an Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The airline will operate five times per week services between the two destinations. The flights on the route were last operated in 2008.
The five times weekly service on Los Angeles-Dublin route would be on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The outbound Flight E145 would depart from Dublin at 15:00 hours and reach Los Angeles at 18:00 hours. The return Flight E144 would make its departure from Los Angeles at 19:50 hours and arrive in Dublin at 14:00 hours next day.
