Aer Lingus flies from Ireland to Europe, Canada, and the United States. It is owned by International Airlines Group (IAG) along with British Airways, Iberia, Vueling, and LEVEL. Transatlantic routes originate in either Dublin (DUB) or Shannon (SNN).
The number of destinations it serves in the U.S. continues to grow, with the additions of Philadelphia (PHL) and Seattle (SEA) to launch in 2018. Aer Lingus is also intending to join the transatlantic joint-venture agreement that IAG has with American Airlines.
In the United States, Aer Lingus operates from Dublin to Miami, Orlando, Hartford, Washington Dulles, Boston, New York JFK, Newark, Hartford, Chicago O’Hare, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, with Seatle and Philadelphia joining in 2018. It also operates service to Toronto in Canada. It also flies from Shannon to Boston and New York.
However, not all of these flights are on widebody aircraft. Some are flown by ASL Airlines, Ltd (formerly known as Air Contractors) which utilize Boeing 757 on some of Aer Lingus’ routes to the Northeastern United States.
