Aer Lingus celebrates transatlantic route with mural

Aer Lingus has teamed up with local graffiti artist Qubek to create a street art mural showcasing the airline’s transatlantic Manchester routes.

The 49ft wide by 38ft highmural appears emblazoned across a building in Manchester’s Thomas Street in the heart of the city’s creative district.

Designed over four days by Manchester-based Qubek – one of the region’s best-known street artists specialising in large scale murals and graffiti – it brought to life the airlines’ colourful northern flight network through a high impact interpretation of the carrier’s US and Caribbean destinations.

Aer Lingus launched transatlantic services from Manchester Airport in October 2021, connecting the North of England directly to the US and Caribbean. The airline also operates direct non-stop flights to New York JFK, Orlando, Florida and Barbados.

Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer, said: “Manchester is home to a vibrant art scene and through this collaboration with Qubek, one of the region’s most renowned artists, we wanted to showcase our long-haul routes operating from Manchester to the local community in a fun and engaging way.

“Since the commencement of our direct transatlantic flights from Manchester nearly a year ago, we have seen great demand for our services to New York, Orlando and Barbados.”

The artwork was completed on June 10 and will be on display for four weeks for visitors to take in and enjoy.

Fares to the US from Manchester start from £275 each way including taxes and charges.
