Aer Lingus to return to LJLA making connections to the US even easier

Liverpool John Lennon Airport is delighted to announce that Aer Lingus will be returning to the Airport and commencing flights to Dublin later this month.

Flights will be operated by Emerald Airlines, the exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional services, commencing on Thursday 27th April, with 11 departures per week including a double daily service on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays using their 72 seat ATR72-600 aircraft, and will see a return for Aer Lingus who last operated from Liverpool in 2016.

In addition to serving Dublin, passengers will have the ability to seamlessly connect onto Aer Lingus flights to North America via Dublin airport with onward flights available to destinations including New York JFK, Washington, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia with transfer times on outbound and return journeys averaging 2 hours.

Dublin Airport is one of only a few airports outside North America that offers a US Preclearance facility that allows US bound passengers to undertake all US immigration and customs inspections at Dublin Airport prior to departure, meaning that passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, allowing them to avoid immigration queues upon arrival and pick up their bags and go.

This new route will also help to attract more international visitors to the Liverpool City Region, with the potential to grow the numbers of visitors from the US.
