The return of the Dublin (DUB/EIDW) to Minneapolis St Paul service makes the completion of Aer Lingus’ North American transatlantic network to pre-pandemic status.

Aer Lingus hasn’t operated the route since 2020 but the newly reinstated route took off again on the 29th April.

The route is served by an Airbus A330 and operates four times per week with flights starting at £279 one (including taxes and charges).

Reid Moody, Aer Lingus Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Aer Lingus is delighted to welcome the return of Minneapolis-St. Paul to our North American route network. 

“There has been a noticeable demand from our passengers for the reinstatement of this route following the temporary pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We are dedicated to offering passengers seamless connections between North America and Ireland, and onward from Ireland to the rest of Europe. The re-introduction of this route marks the airline’s full restoration of our pre-pandemic North American network and serves as testament to this commitment. 

“Minneapolis-St Paul is a significant business destination within the US and we look forward to once again facilitating corporate links and connectivity between Europe and North America, through our Dublin Hub.”

British passengers can fly to Minneapolis via Dublin from most UK Airports with Aer Lingus.
