Aer Lingus continues to rebuild its Dublin hub with the resumption of direct flights to Miami, Florida from Friday 21 October, for the first time in two and a half years. The route will operate three times weekly using Airbus A330-300 aircraft, as part of the airline’s winter schedule.

The route will offer connections from key UK and European airports to Miami via Dublin where travellers will experience the benefits of pre-clearing US immigration ahead of their long-haul flight. Almost 1 in 4 passengers will have begun their journey outside of Ireland.

Dublin is Miami’s only pre-clearance trans-Atlantic destination, allowing Aer Lingus passengers to receive U.S. Customs and Border Protection clearance before they leave Ireland and arrive in Miami as domestic passengers.

Dublin is also now Miami’s 16th nonstop European route.

Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer Susanne Carberry, said “Miami is an ideal destination for every type of traveller whether it be the cruising fanatics, sun seekers, party goers or the keen shoppers, there are endless possibilities. As the only carrier to operate direct flights between Ireland and Miami, recommencing the service is a key milestone for Aer Lingus. Not only can the people of Miami rediscover everything that Ireland and beyond has to offer, with seamless connections to Miami from the UK and Europe Aer Lingus caters to a much broader market.”

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said “Congratulations to Aer Lingus on their return to Miami-Dade County after two and a half years.  I am so pleased to have the only nonstop service between South Florida and Ireland back at MIA and to see our two regions reconnected before the winter travel season begins.”

MIA Director and CEO Ralph Cutié said “We proudly welcome Aer Lingus and its award-winning service back to MIA.  We are thrilled to once again provide our travellers with nonstop flights to Ireland and to be one of only 16 cities in North America served by Aer Lingus.”
