Aer Lingus has announced plans to resume two US routes from its Dublin hub next month.

Flights to Newark will restart on November 14, with four frequencies per week increasing to daily from December 1.

This will be followed by the resumption of thrice weekly services to Orlando on November 27.

Lead-in fares for the Dublin-Newark route start from €149 each way, with Dublin-Orlando starting from €169 each way.

The carrier is also set to be launching transatlantic services from Manchester in the coming weeks, following several delays.

These Manchester flights to Barbados (from October 20), New York JFK (December 1) and Orlando (December 11) were not mentioned in the latest press release from Aer Lingus, but the airline has confirmed to Business Traveller that these dates are still accurate.

Closer to home the Irish carrier will also resume flights from Dublin to Geneva and Prague from October 15, and to Frankfurt and Zurich from November 8. Daily festive services from Knock to Gatwick will also start on December 18.

Commenting on the news Susanne Carberry, chief customer officer at Aer Lingus, said:

“We are delighted to announce a significant restart to a number of our favourite routes in North America and Europe, and reconnecting friends, families and businesses once again.

“We are also excited to be able to connect Irish customers with European cities of Prague, Geneva, Zurich, Frankfurt, destinations which are particularly popular in Winter for their Christmas markets, and the upcoming Ski season, and our customers from Knock into London Gatwick for Christmas.

“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.”
