Aer Lingus announces extra flights from Manchester to Barbados and Dublin to Hartford

Customers in the North of England can now enjoy Aer Lingus’ convenient three times weekly service to the sandy beaches of the Caribbean for an extra month.

Direct flights from the airline’s Manchester base have been extended from April to 31 May 2024, giving customers the chance to bathe in Barbadian sunshine this Spring.

Following the successful relaunch of Aer Lingus’ popular Connecticut service in March, Aer Lingus has also extended t direct flights between Dublin and Hartford into the winter season, giving customers the opportunity to experience New England during the festive period.

Customers will now be able to enjoy three direct flights per week between 29 October 2023 and 5 January 2024 – instead of the previous end date of 28 October 2023.

Hartford flights will then restart earlier than planned on 13 March 2024, with the airline operating a three-times weekly schedule until 30 March, when daily flights will resume until 26 October 2024.

Thanks to the convenience of US Customs and Immigration pre-clearance at Dublin, customers can speed up their journey, and arrive in the US as a domestic passenger.

Those looking for a break in Barbados can enjoy direct return fares from Manchester starting at £349 in Economy Class, and from £1,489 in Business Class, including all taxes and charges.
