All year round again from Shannon to the States

[ February 6, 2014   //   ]

Aer Lingus is reintroducing year-round transatlantic operations at Shannon airport in the west of Ireland. The Irish carrier is replacing its single Airbus 330s based at Shannon with two Boeing B757s and has launched a new service from Shannon to Boston, boosting the total number of US flights from the airport from seven to 13 a week – daily to New York and six times a week to Boston.
Aer Lingus is also adding new routes from Dublin to San Francisco and Toronto this year.
Aer Lingus director of cargo, Peter O’Neill, said: “This is a welcome addition to our freight capacity between Ireland and Boston. The Boeing 757 aircraft is ideal for smaller items of freight, or courier consignments, and with daily frequency from Shannon it means these goods can be more speedily delivered to Boston.”
Larger items can be carried on the Dublin-Boston Airbus 330 service.
