They’re back – Aer Lingus’ flights from Dublin direct to LA, hallelujah!

It was a sad day when the only direct route from Ireland was done away with a few years back and while there are other options now, everyone is pretty pleased to see our national carrier heading back west.

Non-stop to Los Angeles in around eleven hours PLUS you’ll clear US Immigration and Customs here in Dublin airport, meaning you’ll land as a local (remember to leave extra time before your flight!). If you’re ever travelled into LAX you’ll understand how much of a massive bonus that it, I’ve stood in their immigration queue for hours on end and it’s so not ideal after a long-haul flight. In fact, now it could even be more cost and time effective for UK passengers to re-route through Dublin direct to LA for that reason!

My love affair with LA is no secret and while the lack of a direct flight didn’t stop me going, I can see a lot more trips in the pipeline now it’ll be so much easier when the Dublin direct to LA flights return on 4th May.

I attended the official launch this morning in The Marker Hotel in Dublin where Aer Lingus flew in Venice Beach dance crew the Calypso Tumblers for a live performance. They also put on a show in the city centre, you can watch it here…
