Aer Lingus Resumes Its Service Between Dublin And Toronto
Aer Lingus has resumed its service between Dublin and Toronto.
In a statement published on its website, Aer Lingus said, "Aer Lingus will today resume its direct connection to Canada's biggest city, Toronto. EI127 will operate four times per week* from Dublin, following an 18-month hiatus. As of September 7th, Canada is permitting entry for fully vaccinated foreign visitors, subject to meeting COVID-19 travel conditions.
"After a long pause, the corridor between Ireland and Canada has reopened and Aer Lingus customers can once again fly direct from Dublin to Toronto, and vice versa, upon presentation of valid travel documents.
"A bustling multicultural metropolis, Ontario’s capital city has so much to offer. Filled with world renowned visitor attractions including Niagara Falls, the CN Tower and Lake Ontario, Toronto packs charm in every pocket and its neighbourhoods Chinatown, Koreatown, Greektown, Little Italy and Little Portugal are well worth a visit."
Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer Statement
In statement also published on Aer Lingus's website, Aer Lingus chief customer officer Susanne Carberry said, "At long last we are re-establishing our direct service to Toronto and can once again connect families, friends and businesses across the Atlantic. This is an important milestone in the recovery of our business and will no doubt be very meaningful to those with Irish-Canadian connections.
"Safety remains our priority at Aer Lingus and we continue to implement measures such as mask requirements and additional cleaning, as has been in practice across the airline for the past year. We are also committed to making the flight experience as comfortable as possible and customers can enjoy our in-flight food, drink and entertainment services on board."
