Delta has announced plans for a new seasonal route between Minneapolis St-Paul and Dublin for summer 2024.

The five-times-weekly service will launch on 9 May next year, with Boeing 767-300 flights departing Minneapolis at 2120, and returning from Dublin at 1200.

Delta will go head-to-head with Aer Lingus on the Minneapolis St-Paul – Dublin route, with the Irish carrier this week having announced plans to resume flights to the US city from 29 April, 2024.

The new routes will add to Delta’s existing seasonal services to Dublin from Atlanta and Boston, as well as the carrier’s year-round route from New York JFK.

Delta operates more than 330 peak day flights to 120 destinations from Minneapolis St-Paul, and recently opened a nature-inspired Sky Club within the airport’s expanded G Concourse.
