Taking advantage of the surge in demand, American Airlines is dramatically increasing its service to Dublin, Ireland with new flights from Charlotte, Chicago, and Dallas through October 29. American already services Dublin through its Philadelphia hub. Chicago’s O’Hare is Dublin’s second most traveled international destination.
American will be offering 13,650 seats per week across its fifty-six air operations, recovering a total of 96.2% capacity from its pre-Covid 2019 levels.
According to Dublinairport.com, Rhett Workman, American’s Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and Asia, said: “We are proud to continue to expand our footprint across Europe with more flying from Dublin to our U.S. hubs, providing more flexible travel options to our customers who are eager to return to the skies. American Airlines is grateful to our Oneworld and Atlantic Joint Business partner Aer Lingus and the Dublin Airport Authority for their support in building a stronger customer-centric hub at Dublin.”
Charlotte, Dallas, Chicago, and Philadelphia are some of the 180 destinations that Dublin Airport will serve worldwide this year, in partnership with 44 airlines, as it continues to rebuild its global reach following the impact on aviation due to COVID-19.
Ireland was one of the first European destinations to drop Covid-19 restrictions earlier this year.
