Transatlantic expansion announcement

Today we announced significant expansion to our transatlantic route offering for 2014. In addition to our existing services to Boston, Chicago, New York and Orlando, we will commence year round direct service between Dublin and San Francisco from April, 2014 with 5 services per week being operated by Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft.

We will also commence direct year-round service to Canada from April 2014. A daily direct Boeing B757 service between Dublin and Toronto will operate during the summer season, with up to four weekly services operating during the winter. Two Boeing B757 aircraft will be based in Shannon and will be used to deliver increased frequency on existing services to Boston and New York. Year-round connections from Shannon to the east-coast will be introduced. This expansion will directly support more than 200 new jobs.
