Aer Lingus to Operate Cargo Flight from Germany to the USA
Aer Lingus is to operate five cargo flights for a German car manufacturer to the United States over the next few days. The first flight was operated this morning with Airbus A330-300 EI-GAJ departed Dublin for Munich at 07.25 as the EI9350. The Airbus will have its belly-hold being used for the cargo. The sequence of flights will call for Aer Lingus to operate one flight on Saturday (20th March), two flights on Sunday and two more on Wednesday (24th March). Three of the flights will operate from Munich and two will operate from Stuttgart. All the flights will be routed through Dublin for a crew change before heading for the nine-hour flight over to Atlanta.
This is not the first time Aer Lingus have used their Airbus A330’s for cargo only flights. Last year, they flew several hundred flights from China to Dublin to collect Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the HSE. They also flew a small series of flights from Korea too. Currently, Aer Lingus use their Airbus A330 on their evening rotation on the Dublin-London service to cater for the extra cargo from the UK. Although restrictions remain for passengers entering the United States, Aer Lingus continue to operate a skeleton service from Dublin to New York, Boston and Chicago to ensure the flow of essential cargo from Irish Businesses into the United States.
