Aer Lingus to launch USA and Caribbean routes from Manchester
The Irish national flag-carrier Aer Lingus* has announced that it's to begin direct transatlantic flights from Manchester Airport from summer 2021.
Promising great value and flexibility, the airline will operate four new routes for those in the north of England; three to the USA - New York JFK*, Orlando* in Florida (both from 29 July 2021) and Boston* (from summer 2022) - as well as one to the Caribbean island of Barbados* from 20 October 2021.
While the New York and Boston routes will be operated by the new single-aisle Airbus A321LR aircraft, the Orlando and Barbados routes, mainly aimed at the leisure holiday market, will be operated by the larger A330 aircraft.
Of the new routes, chief commercial officer David Shepherd of Aer Lingus said: "We are delighted to offer high-quality, direct, non-stop, business and leisure travel options at very reasonable prices for travellers and holidaymakers across the north of England."
"Aer Lingus has been flying to North America* for more than 60 years and we also have a proud history with Manchester Airport."
