Why Dublin is an American dream

Why Dublin is an American dream

Why Dublin is an American dream
01 December 2014

Now you’ve got another reason to visit Dublin.

What is it, we hear you ask? Well, fly with Aer Lingus to the US via Ireland’s capital, and you can save yourself a lot of time.

Dublin is the only European capital with US pre-clearance, meaning you clear US Customs & Immigration prior to landing in the US. Compared to travelling via other major cities, this can save you hours, meaning you can make the most from your trip to the US, rather than standing in queues.

Furthermore, the overall experience of moving through the modern Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport is a pleasure. The Aer Lingus Flight Connections desk are on hand to assist in any way needed or you can use the new mobile service app to help you navigate from your arriving flight to your connecting flight with ease. All this means more time for you to eat and drink, relax, shop or use the free Wi-Fi before your onward journey. So for great value fares, an easier and quicker way to fly to the U.S., it makes sense to choose Aer Lingus and fly via Dublin Airport.
