Scousers will soon be able to catch direct flights to Dublin with Aer Lingus as the company returns to Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Flights will be operated by Emerald Airlines and from Dublin passengers can connect to a huge number of flights to different locations.
We’d always pick the relative calm of Liverpool John Lennon Airport over Manchester Airport, which can be super busy and stressful. It’s far easier to travel to and compared to a lot of other airports in the UK it’s pretty chill.
Those with family in Ireland will be glad of the news, but those with family in the United States will also be clapping their hands. Dublin Airport actually provides a US Preclearance Facility, which is rare this side of the pond.
So, there you can complete all of the appropriate inspections etcetera before travelling onward to the US. Most of the flights from Dublin to the US land in the East of the country, in places like Philadelphia, New York JFK, Washington DC, Chicago and Boston.
However, from there passengers can easily catch flights to the South, Midwest and West coast. Transfer times in Dublin are about two hours, so you won’t have to wait around in the airport too long to catch your connection.
Fares on Aer Lingus flights to Dublin start at £29.18 and are on sale now. The actual flights will commence on April 27, with eleven departures from Liverpool John Lennon Airport every week. On Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays there will even be two departures per day.
