From 23 October, Aer Lingus will begin operating 16 flights per week between Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) and Dublin on a 174 seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
“The historic connection between the two cities makes Dublin–Liverpool the perfect choice for Aer Lingus’s first major expansion in short-haul services for a decade,” remarked chief revenue officer of Aer Lingus, Mike Rutter. “We believe that we can offer the region both great value flights to Dublin and also access to the fastest growing transatlantic gateway in Europe.”
Aer Lingus flights from Dublin are available to destinations including New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington, Orlando, San Francisco and Toronto, with the morning flight from Liverpool timed to enable transfer times in Dublin of as little as 75 minutes. The airline also has codeshare agreements with JetBlue and United Airlines, enabling onward connectivity to over 100 destinations across North America.
Because all parts of the US Customs and Border Protection Pre-clearance process are completed at Dublin airport, Aer Lingus customers clear US immigration and customs before departing for the US.
Flight times are also convenient for passengers conducting a day’s business in Dublin, departing from Liverpool at 08:40 and arriving back at 19:05 throughout the working week.
