On Thursday (July 7, 2022), Aer Lingus announced the restart of service between Dublin and Seattle, Washington for the first time since March 2020. The route will be operated five times per week with one-way fares from €329 including taxes and fees.

In Thursday’s announcment, Aer Lingus’ Chief Customer Officer, Susanne Carberry, said,
“We are delighted to announce the Seattle route restart after a pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Aer Lingus is the only carrier connecting customers to the West Coast of USA with daily flights, reaffirming our commitment to building our transatlantic connections”
Aer Lingus has partnered with VeriFLY to simplify the travel experience.

The flexible booking policy is available on all booking through September 30, 2022. Additionally, most fares include the option to exchange for a guaranteed voucher up to 14 days before travel, and guests who book Advantage, Flex, Business or Business Flex fares have the option of a cash refund if they decide not to travel.
