Aer Lingus to add new direct flights to U.S. in 2024

Aer Lingus will expand its long-haul summer 2024 network with new routes to Denver, Colorado, and Minneapolis-St Paul.

The airline will introduce a new direct service to Denver, Colorado and reinstate the Minneapolis-St. Paul route next year, both taking off from Dublin.

Flights to Minneapolis-St Paul commence on April 29, 2024, increasing from four-times weekly to a daily year-round service from next October and will be served by the A321XLR from winter 2024.

Dublin-Denver flights, which will also operate four times a week, will begin from May 17, 2024.

The new Aer Lingus routes will bring the total number operated by the airline between Ireland and North America to 18.

Lynne Embleton, Aer Lingus Chief Executive,said: “With Dublin’s geographic position as the gateway to Europe, pre-clearance facilities at the airport and the strong, long established Irish American ties, Aer Lingus is ideally placed to connect people and places across the Atlantic. 

“Denver’s position as the ‘Gateway to the Rockies’ and its outdoor appeal, from world class skiing to hiking, opens up a whole new US experience to leisure travellers from Ireland and Europe.”

Embleto added: “This summer has been our biggest yet, with 2.25 million seats to North America and the successful addition of Cleveland, Ohio to our network. We are confident in our growth strategy and look forward to welcoming customers onboard these two new routes next year.’’
