Aer Lingus flights to Denver get underway

Aer Lingus Denver

Leading Irish airliner Aer Lingus (EI/EIN) has begun flights to Denver, Colorado from Dublin (DUB/EIDW) with the first flight taking off today at 1530 local time.

The new route will be operated four times per week by an Airbus A330 with flight times selected to allow for seamless connections from flights from UK on Aer Lingus’ network.

Passengers will also be able to make use of US Customs pre-clearance at Dublin airport allowing them to arrive into Denver as domestic passengers avoiding often lengthy immigration on arrival.

Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer, said: “We are thrilled to commence our Denver route today, another important milestone for Aer Lingus to drive forward our North American expansion. 

“The new service is also of huge importance to the Denver region as Aer Lingus is the only European carrier that flies non-stop to Ireland and offers convenient onward connections to the UK and Europe via our hub here at Dublin Airport. 

“When flying with us, passengers will experience Aer Lingus’ signature warmth and friendly Irish welcome onboard. Aer Lingus also offers excellent food and drink options, a wide range of in-flight entertainment options and a recently upgraded onboard Wi-Fi system for better connectivity across the Atlantic.

“The new direct route to Denver will also facilitate increased collaboration between Ireland and Colorado’s thriving business and tourism industries and we look forward to welcoming many passengers on board.”

The “mile high city” sits 5,280ft above sea level along the Rocky Mountain range with some of the highest peaks on the range situated nearby. The famous ski resort of Aspen is around 3 hours away.
