Aer Lingus’ Dublin to Miami
Earlier this summer, Aer Lingus held a launch party in Dublin for its new route to Miami in which attendees had a chance to win prizes including a trip to the Floridian city. Seen presenting lucky winner Rowena Shanley with two return flights to Miami, seven nights accommodation, plus a $100 voucher for the Hard Rock Cafe were Seb Sarrasin, Trade Marketing and PR Manager, Greater Miami CVB, and Yvonne Muldoon, Director of Sales at Aer Lingus. The Irish flag carrier, which launched flights to Miami on 1 September, will operate the route three times weekly on its A330-200s.
- Aer Lingus launched flights to its 11th North American destination from Dublin (DUB) on 1 September, with Miami (MIA) now being part of the Irish flag carrier’s network. The Magic City becomes the airline’s second route to Florida after Orlando. The 6,690-kilometre sector will be operated by Aer Lingus three times weekly (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) year-round on its fleet of A330-200s. “We are delighted to welcome Aer Lingus’ new transatlantic service to Miami,” said Dublin Airport MD Vincent Harrison. “This new route offers further choice and flexibility for both business and leisure passengers,” he added. No competition is currently offered on the city pair. With this launch, Aer Lingus now operates 98 weekly flights from Dublin to North America. With Aer Lingus joining Miami’s airline line-up, it means that the airport has non-stop flights to 22 destinations in Europe this summer.
