Aer Lingus has been revealed as official Airline Partner of The X Factor 2018 for the second year run in a deal which will showcase the airline on the London-based ITV talent show.

It’s the second time that Aer Lingus featured on the show. Last year contestants were visibly disappointed to end up in Dublin in the judges’ houses round. Their mood brightened when judge Louis Walsh told them it was just a stopover en route to San Francisco, flying business class.
