Aer Lingus to Increase Capacity to North America

Summer 2020 will see Aer Lingus’ highest ever capacity to North America with more seats on sale to transatlantic destinations. Orlando, Florida will move from a four flights per week service to six flights per week, the Miami service will increase from two to three flights per week and the Dublin to Seattle route will move to a daily service in summer 2020, increasing from five flights per week.

Fleet upgrades will also see some direct routes enjoy greater capacity next year, such as Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Minneapolis St. Paul which will soon be serviced by the larger Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

Commenting on the launch of the 2020 summer schedule, David Shepherd, Chief Commercial Officer, Aer Lingus, said:

“We are delighted to announce our first service to Rhodes following the recent reveal of two new direct routes from Dublin to Italy and our new routes from Shannon direct to Paris and Barcelona. We have focused on delivering Europe’s most popular sun destinations as part our summer schedule next year and the addition of Rhodes along with our existing service to Athens really opens up Greece and the Greek islands to Irish holidaymakers.”

Aer Lingus’ Dublin to Rhodes, Greece summer service commences from 23 May until 12 September 2020 and will be operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft twice weekly. For latest fare information visit aerlingus.com.
