And there’s Aer Lingus’ market-leading ‘Book with Confidence’ policy** which allows customers change flights as many times as they like, should plans change.
There’s never been a better time to take 2022 to new heights (and sights) and plan a break to get some spring sun. Wander the streets of Portugal with flights to Lisbon and Faro, venture to Spain for some beach, fun, and sunshine in Lanzarote, Malaga or Santorini, or perhaps sample some of the local cuisines in Milan, with up to 20% off European travel. Whether it’s sandy beaches, city breaks, family fun, or active adventures you’re seeking, Aer Lingus has offers for all.
With 13 direct routes between North America and Ireland, including New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Washington, Seattle, and Philadelphia, it’s time to plan a trip stateside with Aer Lingus in 2022.

In March, Aer Lingus will re-introduce flights to the USA from Shannon, with 14 flights a week to New York and Boston.
As always, customers flying to North America with Aer Lingus will enjoy complimentary meals and drinks, endless hours of in-flight entertainment, and US Customs and Border pre-clearance at Dublin and Shannon airports.
