Liverpool John Lennon Airport has announced that Aer Lingus will be returning to the Airport and commencing flights to Dublin later this month.
Flights will be operated by Emerald Airlines, the exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional services, commencing on Thursday 27th April, with 11 departures per week, including a double daily service on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays using their 72-seat ATR72-600 aircraft. This will see a return for Aer Lingus, which last operated from Liverpool in 2016.
Passengers will be able to conveniently connect onto Aer Lingus flights to North America via Dublin airport via Dublin, available onward flights include those to New York JFK, Washington, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia; transfer times on outbound and return journeys averaging 2 hours.
Dublin Airport is one of only a handful of airports outside of North America that provides a US Preclearance facility, allowing passengers travelling to the US to complete all US immigration and customs inspections there prior to departure. This means that passengers travelling to the US are treated as domestic arrivals and can pick up their bags and leave without waiting in immigration queues.
This new route will also help to attract more international visitors to the Liverpool City Region, with the potential to grow the numbers of visitors from the US.
Flights to Dublin are on now sale here with one way fares, starting from £29.18 one-way including taxes (subject to fare and terms and conditions).
