Aer Lingus News

9th April 2018

Aer Lingus to cease Boston-Shannon service from winter 2018

Aer Lingus is the second airline to announce that it is dropping this US- Ireland connection for the winter months. The news from Aer Lingus follows a similar announcement from Norwegian Air International last week, meaning the Mid West facility will have no direct routes to Boston between January and March. Aer Lingus has been known to cease the New York route for its winter schedule rather than dropping the Boston one. However, next winter will see the route to New York increase which will mean the total transatlantic seat capacity from Shannon next winter will rise by 2,500, indicating a shift in customer base for the airline.
