Aer Lingus Resumes Service to Toronto After 18 Month Hiatus
After an 18 month hiatus due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Aer Lingus resumed service between Dublin and Toronto today. Flight EI127 will operate twice-weekly for the first week, four times weekly until December 17th, and daily for Christmas.
On Friday (September 17, 2021), Aer Lingus announced the restart of service between Dublin and Toronto with the departure of flight EI127 today. The carrier will offer two weekly flights until September 23rd, increasing to four weekly flights through December 17th, and daily flights for Christmas. The route has been suspended for the last 18 months due to the global COVID-19, and has now restarted following Canada’s September 7th reopening of travel for fully-vaccinated visitors.
Speaking on the route announcement, Aer Lingus’ Chief Customer Officer, Susanne Carberry, said,
“At long last we are re-establishing our direct service to Toronto and can once again connect families, friends and businesses across the Atlantic. This is an important milestone in the recovery of our business and will no doubt be very meaningful to those with Irish-Canadian connections. Safety remains our priority at Aer Lingus and we continue to implement measures such as mask requirements and additional cleaning, as has been in practice across the airline for the past year. We are also committed to making the flight experience as comfortable as possible and customers can enjoy our in-flight food, drink and entertainment services on board.”
Aer Lingus advises customers to use their new online travel support tool to review destination travel requirements. Additionally, the carrier’s ‘Book With Confidence’ policy provides added flexibility through December 31, 2021. Aer Lingus offers competitive Business and Economy Class fares on transatlantic flights from Dublin. Fares to Toronto start at only €149 each-way, as part of a return journey.
