Aer Lingus recently announced its transatlantic winter schedule, and not unexpectedly it reflects the unprecedented operating environment in which the entire aviation industry currently finds itself.
Direct services between Dublin and Washington and Dublin San Francisco will be suspended for the winter (though daily one-stop services will be offered in cooperation with Jetblue and United Airlines).
The service from Shannon to Chicago will be suspended for the winter from September 1st, and the Shannon to Boston service will be reduced to 4 flights a week from daily.
In light of Delta’s earlier decision to suspend its winter services on the Shannon/New York route, Aer Lingus are now reappraising their 4 times weekly service on this route.
Enda Corneille, Aer Lingus Director of Corporate Affairs, spoke with ITIC Chief Executive, Eamonn McKeon.
