Aer Lingus Resumes Service Between Dublin and Los Angeles
Aer Lingus has today resumed service between Dublin and Los Angeles for the first time since March 2020. The carrier will offer daily service on the route with one-way fares from only €329, based on a return trip.
On Thursday (May 12, 2022), Aer Lingus announced the restart of service between Dublin and Los Angeles (LAX) for the first time since March 2020. For summer 2022, the carrier will offer daily service on the route with one-way fares starting at only €329 as part of return trip. Aer Lingus is the only carrier offering direct service between Ireland and the U.S. West Coast, and today’s resumed service to LAX follows the restart of daily flights between Dublin and San Francisco (SFO) on February 28, 2022. To celebrate the relaunch of the route, Aer Lingus has created the perfect ‘chill playlist’ which lasts for the duration of the flight. The specially curated playlist is available on Aer Lingus’ Spotify profile and is listed as Spotify – ReLAX with Aer Lingus.
Speaking on today’s route restart, Aer Lingus’ Chief Customer Officer, Susanne Carberry, said,
“We are delighted to be resuming our Los Angeles route for the first time since March 2020 and reuniting friends, family and businesses. Los Angeles is a hugely popular and important route for Aer Lingus and now with daily connections to both Los Angeles and San Francisco, Aer Lingus are the only carrier connecting customers to the West Coast of USA reaffirming our commitment to building our transatlantic connections.”

Seattle service will restart on July 7th with five weekly flights, while Miami flights will resume on October 21, 2022.
Aer Lingus has partnered with VeriFLY to simplify the travel experience.
