Aer Lingus Returns to Miami
The first Aer Lingus flight to Miami for two and half years took off from Dublin Airport shortly after 4.00 pm this afternoon. The route will operate three times weekly, as part of the airline’s winter schedule with departures from Dublin on Fridays, Sundays and Wednesdays. The recommencement of the Aer Lingus Dublin to Miami service closely follows the recent announcement of Cleveland, Ohio and the return of Hartford, Connecticut, both of which will operate as part of the airline’s summer 2023 programme. Aer Lingus operates 16 direct routes between Ireland and North America including New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Washington, Seattle, and Philadelphia. The airline is the only carrier offering direct flights between Ireland and Miami.
Reinforcing Dublin as the natural European transatlantic gateway, Aer Lingus will offer connections from the key UK and European airports to Miami via Dublin where travellers will experience the benefits of pre-clearing US immigration ahead of their long-haul flight. On Aer Lingus’ inaugural service to Miami, operating almost 25% of the passengers will have begun their journey outside of Ireland.
Commenting ahead of the first departure to Miami, the Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer, Susanne Carberry said, “Miami, Florida is an ideal destination for every type of traveller whether it be the cruising fanatics, sun seekers, party goers or the keen shoppers, there are endless possibilities. As the only carrier to operate direct flights to Miami from Ireland, we can also cater to the UK and European markets given the seamless connections we offer travellers transiting via Dublin. Restarting our Miami service is a further proof point of our ambition to continue to grow our North American network.”
