Aer Lingus has launched its biggest ever summer 2023 schedule for UK customers with a record-breaking 2.25 million seats on sale to North America.

The Irish flag carrier unveiled its largest North American summer schedule to date in line with customer demand for more transatlantic flights, including services from its popular Manchester hub.

Customers can enjoy the ultimate in choice and flexibility when booking their summer holidays next year, with a huge 270,000 seats on offer flying direct from Manchester to New York, and Orlando.

Capacity from Manchester to New York has been boosted by a massive 72% by switching aircraft from the single-aisle Airbus A321LR to a wide-bodied A330, offering at least 133 more seats per flight.

Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer, said: “After a highly successful year flying customers to and from the UK over the Atlantic, we’re excited to be launching our largest ever summer schedule for customers in 2023.

“Flights from Manchester have proved extremely popular so we have boosted capacity by introducing larger aircraft on transatlantic services to New York, and next summer will offer 270,000 seats on sale direct from our north of England hub.

“This will give our customers even greater choice and flexibility when booking their summer holidays for 2023 and make Aer Lingus first choice for flying to North America.”
