Aer Lingus is offering discounted promotional fares for travel from the UK to the US via Ireland.

One-way rates start at £199 to New York and Hartford, Connecticut, for bookings made before midnight on Monday (August 15).

The Irish carrier claims to have grown faster than any other airline between Europe and North America over the last six years.

The transatlantic network is being bolstered with direct daily flights from Dublin to Newark from September 1 and four flights a week to Hartford from September 28.

The airline currently flies to eight North American cities on 10 transatlantic routes with connections from 19 UK airports, including Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Aer Lingus’ one-stop transatlantic services from Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool airports via Dublin have seem year-on-year growth of 18% with many others also reporting double-digit rises.

Manchester is the most popular starting point for UK travellers flying on the airline’s transatlantic services, followed by Birmingham and Heathrow.

Holidaymakers to North America make up almost 40% of passengers flying from the UK, compared to over a third who are visiting friends and relatives.

The airline enables UK passengers to pre-clear US Customs and Immigration in Dublin, the fifth-largest transatlantic gateway in Europe.
