Aer Lingus will relaunch its Dublin-Los Angeles service next year.
From May 4, the Irish carrier will operate an A330-200 five-times weekly between the two cities. The airline last flew the route in 2008.
On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, outbound service EI145 will depart Dublin at 1500 and arrive in Los Angeles at 1800. Return leg will leave LAX at 1950 and land in Dublin at 1400 the next day, reports airlineroute.net.
Aer Lingus is expected to announce three US routes, including to LAX, later today. It is thought the other two might be Hartford, Connecticut and Miami.
In August, the airline officially agreed to become part of IAG after 95.77 per cent of its shareholders backed the takeover (see news, August 19).
