Aer Lingus Announces Three New Ireland-US Routes
In September, 2007, Aer Lingus will begin offering three new routes between Ireland and North America. Thanks to the addition of two new aircraft, this legacy-turned-low-cost carrier is introducing direct flights between Ireland and Washington D.C. (Dulles), Orlando, and San Francisco.
Aer Lingus already operates direct routes between Ireland and New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Though service from the new cities will not be daily—flights to and from Orlando will operate three times per week and flights to and from Washington and San Francisco will operate four times per week—with pre-tax one-way fares starting at just €125 to D.C., €145 to Orlando, and €160 to San Francisco, this is news that anyone contemplating a cheap hop from the US to Europe (or Europe to the US) will want to check out.
