Aer Lingus is flying high today, as the newly returned Minneapolis St. Paul (MSP) route takes off from Dublin Airport for the first time since it was paused in March 2020.

From today – 29 April 2024 – Aer Lingus will offer four weekly flights between Dublin and Minneapolis St. Paul, with flights operated by the airline’s widebody Airbus A330 aircraft.

Flights have been timed to allow connections to and from the airline’s 15 destinations in Mainland Britain, including London Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh, giving customers unrivalled access to Minneapolis.

Reid Moody, Aer Lingus Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Aer Lingus is delighted to welcome the return of Minneapolis-St. Paul to our North American route network.

“There has been a noticeable demand from our passengers for the reinstatement of this route following the temporary pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are dedicated to offering passengers seamless connections between North America and Ireland, and onward from Ireland to the rest of Europe. The re-introduction of this route marks the airline’s full restoration of our pre-pandemic North American network and serves as testament to this commitment.

“Minneapolis-St Paul is a significant business destination within the US and we look forward to once again facilitating corporate links and connectivity between Europe and North America, through our Dublin Hub.”
