Aer Lingus Now Planning Direct Flights From Dublin To Vegas

Aer Lingus is launching a new direct service from Dublin to Las Vegas starting next winter.

According to The Irish Independent, they are initially planning it as a seasonal service, but according to chief executive, Stephen Kavanagh, it could be extended depending on performance. 

While we're sure the new route is sure to attract fun-lovers and gamblers to the party town, Aer Lingus will also be making the most of Dublin Airport's position as a transatlantic hub to lure passengers to the service from the UK and Europe.

When speaking to the Irish Independent, Mr Kavanagh said:

"We are working to build a business case to operate a seasonal service to Las Vegas." 

"We need to find a balance to the peak summer months, where the US consumer is the main source of our traffic and where Ireland is the destination."

The Las Vegas service will be the 11th operated by Aer Lingus to the United States.
