Aer Lingus adds two new transatlantic routes

Aer Lingus has launched two new transatlantic routes from Dublin to Montréal and Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The Irish carrier will fly daily from Dublin Airport to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport from 8 July next year with a Boeing 757 aircraft.

On 8 August the airline will begin its daily service to Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Canada, utilising an Airbus A321neo.

These two new transatlantic routes are Aer Lingus’ 14th and 15th in North America, bringing the total number of routes it operates across the Atlantic to 17.

The new services to Montréal and Minneapolis-St. Paul will add a quarter of million additional seats annually to Aer Lingus’ transatlantic network, which already offers 2.8 million seats annually between Ireland and North America.
