Aer Lingus has announced significant expansion to its transatlantic route offering for 2014.
In addition to its existing services from Boston, Chicago, New York and Orlando, the airline will commence year round direct service between San Francisco and Dublin from April, 2014 with 5 services per week being operated by Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft.
Aer Lingus will also commence direct year-round service from Canada from April, 2014. A daily direct Boeing B757 service between Toronto and Dublin will operate during the summer season, with up to four weekly services operating during the winter. Two Boeing B757 aircraft will be based in Shannon and will be used to deliver increased frequency on existing services from Boston and New York. Year- round connections from the east-coast to Shannon will be introduced. This expansion will directly support more than 200 new jobs.
In addition Aer Lingus customers from sixteen cities across the U.S. (including Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Diego) will benefit from convenient connections to Ireland via San Francisco, as well as a number of UK and European cities via Dublin.
