Aer Lingus is coming to Cleveland

Aer Lingus has made this announcement:

Aer Lingus is planning to launch a new transatlantic route for summer 2023 which will see the airline operate its first service to Cleveland, Ohio, with connections from nine UK airports.

Starting on May 19, 2023, the new North America service will operate four times a week.

This will be Aer Lingus’ 15th transatlantic route from Ireland and the only direct European service to Cleveland.

UK customers will be able to connect on onto Aer Lingus’ Cleveland service via Dublin from nine UK airports, including Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol, Southampton, and Leeds Bradford.

Next summer Aer Lingus will offer customers a choice of 15 transatlantic routes between Ireland and North America, as well as three long-haul services from its Manchester base. 

Rebuilding connectivity and growing its transatlantic network is critical to Aer Lingus’ long-term growth strategy as it continues its recovery following the pandemic. 

The addition of Cleveland as a new destination demonstrates the airline’s commitment to connecting Europe to North America via its Dublin Hub.

The new Dublin-Cleveland service will be served by an Airbus A321neo LR, which is Aer Lingus’ most sustainable long-haul aircraft.

The Airbus A321neo LR, which comprises both Business Cabin and Economy Class cabin, delivers up to 20% reduction in fuel burn and CO2 emissions and close to 50% reduction in noise footprint, when compared to previous generation aircraft.
