We've been hearing rumors of a new Aer Lingus service to the East Coast for a while and the rumors got louder late last week with Philadelphia being named as the city expected to get the new service....and so it has turned out to be.
Aer Lingus has been growing its transatlantic route network over the past few years and, with Dublin and Shannon being good launching points to the rest of Europe, the airline can be quite a good option for travelers looking to get to Europe from the US (or to the US from Europe). Now, in what appears to be an attempt to compete with the low-cost carriers that fly across the Atlantic (especially Norwegian), Aer Lingus has introduced what it's calling a "saver fare".
Aer Lingus is continuing its network expansion to the US with the scheduling of a new service between Dublin and Miami for fall 2017. This new route comes at a time where Aer Lingus is clearly ramping up its offering across the Atlantic after recommencing service to Los Angeles back in May and starting up service to Hartford and Newark in September.
News of Aer Lingus continuing to add services to the US while Lufthansa kills off a route completely before reopening an old route they haven't deserved in years. Not to be left out of the new route announcements, Southwest's spring schedule shows a number of interesting new options.
A quick roundup of some of the more important airline route news from the past few days. There's good news for travelers flying across...
