Aer Lingus to fly to San Francisco and Toronto

News Wednesday, 03 July 2013 15:30 Written by 

Aer Lingus will start Dublin–San Francisco and Dublin–Toronto next year and increase its services from Shannon to New York and Boston.

In a major expansion to its long-haul routes, Aer Lingus is ramping up its transatlantic routes from 2014 with two additions to its current North American destinations of Boston, Chicago, New York and Orlando.

 

San Francisco will join the airline’s route map from April 2014 with a year-round A330 service flying five times a week.

 

Aer Lingus dropped Dublin–San Francisco in 2009, although the route’s appeal for the IT sector has recently attracted interest from United Airways.

 

Toronto is due to be served from April with year-round B757 flights. These will fly daily in summer and up to four times a week during winter.

 

For Boston and New York, Aer Lingus will base two B757s in Shannon to raise the frequencies of current services.

 

San Francisco flights will open connections with another 16 cities, said the carrier.

 

From Toronto, travellers can connect with eight additional Canadian cities.

 

Christoph Mueller, Aer Lingus’s chief executive, said the airline’s transatlantic capacity will rise by 24% in 2014, following a 13% increase in 2013.

 

“Our operation of the San Francisco route will strengthen Ireland’s ties with Silicon Valley and encourage Ireland’s development as a technology hub for Europe,” he said.

 

“Toronto is the sixth biggest North American market out of Ireland. In addition to being a great tourist destination, the city is home to a large Irish community and we look forward to welcoming them on board.”
