Aer Lingus has resumed four transatlantic routes

Aer Lingus has resumed flying on the Dublin to Washington route four times weekly even though US travel restrictions remain in place.

It is now flying four US routes, including Boston, Chicago and New York JFK, but the airline is still well off its the pre-pandemic route network.

Peter O'Neill, Chief Operating Officer at Aer Lingus, said the airline is delighted to reconnect 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."

Aer Lingus said it offers highly competitive fares in both Business Class and Economy Class on its transatlantic services operating from Dublin.
