Reason to fly with Aer Lingus
Although Aer Lingus's mission is to "connect Ireland with the world", we dare to say that the main reason to fly with Aer Lingus is because of its excellent service between Ireland and the United States where it operates in 14 airports from which we can access more of 100 connections. Although flights to North America are an important part of its operation, Aer Lingus bases its strategy on a short-radio flight operation based on a business model with economic fares, a demand-driven model, simple in its design and focused on costs, products and passenger service.
Apart from the above, Aer Lingus, as do the rest of the IAG airlines, operates all flights from major airports which helps a lot as we can reach our destination from the airport much quicker and with more options.
And like other similar airlines, Aer Lingus offers many advantages if we register with AerClub, its frequent flyer program with which we can accumulate Avios and get advantages and discounts on all our flights with Aer Lingus. It's free and the advantages are many!
Aer Lingus operates scheduled and limited charter flights to/from a total of 92 airports, across 24 countries in Europe, North America, the Canary Islands, and the Asian portion of Turkey. Some destinations are served seasonally as indicated and some routes are operated under the Aer Lingus Regional brand by Stobart Air. Aer Lingus also serves over an additional 100 destinations across the world through codeshare and interline agreements with Air Canada, British Airways, Etihad Airways, Flybe, JetBlue and United Airlines.
