Aer Lingus announces further transatlantic expansion for 2017

Aer Lingus has announced its 2017 Dublin summer schedule that further expands its long haul network with a new Dublin to Miami route, operating three times per week from September 2017.

The new Miami service is in addition to Aer Lingus’ existing transatlantic routes: Boston, Chicago, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, Washington and Toronto via Dublin and Boston and New York via Shannon, as well as the new routes to Los Angeles, Newark and Hartford, which commenced earlier this year.

The airline will increase its Los Angeles flight to a daily service for summer 2017, Dublin to Orlando will increase to four times per week, and Chicago will also increase to a double daily service in the same period.

In addition to its expanded transatlantic network, the airline is also including two new European destinations to its summer schedule – Porto in Portugal and Split in Croatia – and extending its winter route from Dublin to Fuerteventura into the 2017 summer schedule.

Aer Lingus Chief Executive Stephen Kavanagh said: “We are delighted to announce the further expansion of our transatlantic network with the addition of Dublin to Miami and increased frequency to Los Angeles, Orlando and Chicago improving connectivity to North America. New routes from Dublin to Porto and Split will continue to the offer the choice, service and value that delivered our Skytrax 4-Star accreditation and we look forward to welcoming guests on board these new services in 2017.”
