Tourism Ireland welcomes new Aer Lingus flights from Minneapolis and Montreal

Published on : Wednesday, September 12, 2018

indexTourism Ireland warmly welcomes today’s announcement by Aer Lingus of two new transatlantic services to Dublin – from Minneapolis-St Paul in the US and Montreal in Canada. These flight will commence in summer 2019 and will help boost tourism from the all-important US and Canadian markets, offering more choice to prospective visitors living in Minnesota and Québec.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement is more good news for tourism to the island of Ireland as we prepare for 2019. We work very closely with Aer Lingus and we look forward to co-operating with them to maximise the promotion of these new flights from Minneapolis and Montreal. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism.

“2018 looks set to be another record year for Irish tourism from North America, with the latest CSO figures showing more than 1.3 million arrivals from the United States and Canada during the January-July period – an increase of +13.5% when compared to the same seven-month period in 2017. Today’s announcement is really positive and augurs well for prospects for tourism from North America to Ireland in 2019 and beyond.”
