Aer Lingus announced its largest-ever winter schedule with 138,000 extra seats from the United Kingdom to Ireland.
The new services and capacity offer increased trans-Atlantic options and convenient connections via Dublin (DUB). The airline will add 350 trans-Atlantic flights for winter 2017 and a 13 percent increase in capacity from last year.
The airline recently launched a long-haul, three-times-weekly Miami (MIA) service, and there will be 12 new flights per week to the West Coast, including Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO).
“This Winter is our biggest yet with considerable expansion of our long-haul and European networks. The increasing recognition that the Aer Lingus Dublin Hub is the fastest, cheapest and least hassle way to visit North America is underpinned by a further 13% increase in transatlantic seats from Dublin this winter,” said Mike Rutter, chief operating officer, Aer Lingus.
The airline’s U.K. short-haul network will also expand over the coming months. Key routes are the Birmingham (BHX)–Dublin service with 50,000 additional seats and the London (LHR)–Dublin service with 56,000 additional seats.
The European network will see increased capacity to key cities including Hamburg (HAM) and Zurich (ZRH), and the Canary Islands (TFS, LPA, ACE, FUE) and popular destinations in France will also enjoy greater frequency.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
