Aer Lingus Launches New Route Between Dublin And Minneapolis
Aer Lingus has launched a new route between Dublin Airport and Minneapolis-St. Paul in Minnesota.
The route will operate six times weekly in July before becoming a daily year-round service in August.
"Significant Onward Connections"
In a statement on Dublin Airport's website, Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said, "This is Aer Lingus's 14th transatlantic route from Dublin Airport and its 11th new transatlantic route in the past five years.
"We have been working closely with Aer Lingus since 2014 to grow its North American business and build a substantial transfer business. The new route offers customers significant onward connections in both directions."
Meanwhile, Aer Lingus chief executive Stephen Doyle commented, "We are delighted to commence Ireland's first and only direct service to Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota state. The Minneapolis-St. Paul region holds great promise for Aer Lingus, particularly in terms of the connections we can offer to UK and European guests, as well as those travelling from North America and onwards to Europe."
