Aer Lingus return to Washington
On Friday, Aer Lingus returned to Washington Dulles with a new service operated four times per week using an Airbus A321NX. The first flight was operated from Dublin by EI-LRB. Aer Lingus will also restart service from Shannon to London Heathrow with flights now showing in their booking system, available from Monday 13th September. These will be the first commercial flights from Shannon by Aer Lingus since the pandemic brought the airline industry to a standstill in March 2020.
Commenting on the restart of the service to Washington, the Chief Operating Officer at Aer Lingus, Peter O’Neill said, “We are delighted to resume the Dublin to D.C. service and to unite friends and families once more doing what we are great at – reconnecting our communities and economies. 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.”
