Statement By Dublin Airport Chief Commercial and Development Officer
The statement published on DublinAirport.com quoted Dublin Airport chief commercial and development officer Vincent Harrison as saying, "This welcome expansion is evidence of the strong demand for transatlantic travel between Dublin Airport and North America. Demand has increased steadily over the past 15 months following the easing of COVID-19 travel restrictions and we anticipate that other summer-only transatlantic routes will also soon become year-round services. American Airlines' expansion is particularly welcome, given the airline's strong commitment to more sustainable flying, which includes the use of sustainable aviation fuel in their aircraft and the use of environmentally conscious products onboard."
