Are you up to the challenge of double jet lag? Well if the answer is yes (or even a hesitant maybe) Aer Lingus plans to reintroduce its 7.50am departure from Dublin to JFK this summer. The flight arrives at 10.20am EST . Just in time for Breakfast?…Brunch?
The service with run from June 9 to August 31 service and could be combined with 17.30EST or 21.00EST return flights from JFK to Dublin which would round the trip round to a total of twenty four hours. Piece of cake.
The airline in 2016 alone is launching new routes to Los Angeles, Newark and Hartford, Connecticut, as well as adding capacity to its Washington DC, Chicago and New York services. Its summer sale fares start at €255 each way.
According to Tourism Ireland, Dublin Airport’s status as a hub with pre-clearance facilities is growing as one in ten North American flights to Europe come through Ireland showing that transatlantic works in both directions.
The capacity of flights is growing from Shannon too, and Cork, as we have reported previously, is getting its first scheduled flights to North America, courtesy of a Norwegian route to Boston, this May.
Exciting times lay ahead.
