Aer Lingus will operate its new Seattle route four times weekly service on a year-round basis from next May 18, 2018.
Aer Lingus’ new service to Seattle will be operated by an Airbus A330 aircraft. The new route will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Aer Lingus has launched 10 new transatlantic services from Dublin since 2014. The Seattle route will provide further choice and flexibility for business and leisure passengers on both sides of the Atlantic.
Speaking at the launch of Aer Lingus’ Dublin Seattle route, Stephen Kavanagh, CEO said the opportunities for wide-bodied aircraft routes form Dublin were as great as those offered by the A321. He said Aer dingus was negotiating with possible code-share partners to operate form Seattle.
The new service to Seattle will have onward connections from Dublin to 24 other European cities including Berlin, Edinburgh, Brussels and Hamburg.
Seattle will be Aer Lingus’ third city on west coast of the US with direct flights from Dublin as there are already direct services to San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The new service will be Dublin Airport’s fourth new long-haul route for next year, as Aer Lingus will launch another new A330 service to Philadelphia, Air Canada will operate flights to Montreal and Cathay Pacific will launch a new direct route to Hong Kong.
