Aer Lingus announces super summer schedule for 2013

7th December 2012 Print

Aer Lingus has launched a packed schedule for next summer with 85 destinations on offer including new sun and city break options and increased frequencies on many existing routes from Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports.

Fly to the sun-drenched island of Corfu with Aer Lingus in summer 2013. Thought to be one of the most relaxed of the islands with some of the best beaches and architecture in Greece, Corfu is a must-see for lovers of all things Greek.

For a city break with a difference, why not fly to one of the airline’s new routes, Copenhagen, which is set to continue throughout the summer. Additional frequencies will be added to many of our customers’ old favourites such as Berlin, Lisbon, Lanzarote, Nice, Chicago and Orlando, to name but some.

Aer Lingus will also introduce a new service from Shannon to Faro, Portugal, giving our customers easy access to the ever-popular holiday resort of the Algarve. In addition the airline has brought forward the recommencement of services to New York and Boston to March 11th after a short winter break and just in time to meet the strong demand for St. Patrick’s weekend.

Customers travelling from Munster have fantastic choice from Cork airport with 23 destinations to choose from and extra flights to Faro and Barcelona every week. Daily flights will continue between Ireland West Airport - Knock and London Gatwick and Birmingham.

Commenting on the launch, Aer Lingus Director of Communications, Declan Kearney said: “Our 2013 summer schedule offers our customers more choice with additional frequencies, new destinations and a great mix of city break and summer sun options. We’ve also significantly increased our number of transatlantic flights in response to customer demand. We look forward to welcoming customers on board the new services.”

For summer 2013, Aer Lingus will add an extra 112,000 seats to their transatlantic schedule. This 15% increase in transatlantic capacity versus 2011 will take the form of 90 additional roundtrips between Dublin and Boston and 120 additional roundtrips between Dublin and Chicago. This will give a significant boost to inbound tourism from the United States.
