Aer Lingus was revealed as an airline partner of talent show The X Factor 2018 last night.

The Irish national carrier flew the girls, groups and ‘overs’ to ‘Judges’ Houses’ for a key part of the show ahead of the live finals.

This weekend’s episode featured the girls, who are being mentored by music mogul Simon Cowell, who flew from London to Los Angeles, via Dublin.

Ruth Ranson, Aer Lingus director of communications, said: “Aer Lingus is proud to be an Airline Partner of The X Factor. We hope that The X Factor contestants enjoyed taking to the skies with Aer Lingus.

“Our dedicated cabin crew, flight crew and ground staff, who go above and beyond every day to ensure our guests experience the very best service in the sky, were instrumental to ensuring the success of this partnership.

“With a route network including 15 destinations in North America, it’s easier than ever to fly to the US and Canada with Aer Lingus and enjoy the amazing Irish hospitality of Ireland’s four-star airline.”

Filming for the show took place at Heathrow’s Terminal 2, and included contestants checking-in for their flights, inside the exclusive Aer Lingus business class lounge and on board in the airline’s business class cabins.
