Air Lingus and Norwegian Air open a new gate to USA not only for Connecticut a New England but also an easy way to reach New York City.
The new Aer Lingus service not only creates a direct link between Connecticut and Ireland, but it also links Connecticut and Western Massachusetts passengers to major destinations across Europe. Via Dublin, Bradley travelers can now avail themselves of onward connections to over 25 UK and European airports including London, Munich, Milan, Madrid, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Paris, Bristol and Berlin, plus many more.
The Hartford launch is the third of three new Aer Lingus transatlantic routes to commence this year, marking the single largest expansion of Aer Lingus’ transatlantic network since the airline commenced transatlantic service in 1958. The growth plan underpins Aer Lingus’ successful strategy of expanding its Dublin Airport base into a major European transatlantic gateway. The convenience of U.S Customs and Border Protection services at Dublin has enhanced the continued growth of Aer Lingus’ Dublin operation as a connecting gateway. This service at Dublin Airport lets passengers complete all necessary U.S. Customs inspections while they are waiting to board their return flight to Bradley, allowing passengers to arrive at Bradley and disembark like regular domestic passengers.
Norwegian Air International, a low-cost carrier and Norwegian Air’s Irish subsidiary, will soon commence operations at Bradley International Airport. Beginning in June, 17, 2017, the airline will offer direct, nonstop service from Bradley International Airport to Edinburgh, Scotland, at its trademark low cost fares.
