Aer Lingus adds extra transatlantic flights from Manchester to Orlando

Aer Lingus has added extra flights to its Winter 2024 schedule from Manchester, as the transatlantic airline continues to expand in the North of England.

The new flights will see Aer Lingus increase its popular Manchester to Orlando route up to four times per week during the peak winter period - an increase from the current three flights per week.

Customers searching for a festive fairy-tale adventure, can enjoy the new fourth weekly flight between 18 December 2024 and 8 January 2025 - including a new service on Christmas Day.

Known for Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios, Orlando also offers visitors thrilling adventures, an exciting cultural scene, and greenspaces perfect for relaxing.

Those looking to get ahead on their Christmas shopping can now book return flights to Orlando from as little as £439 in Economy, including all taxes and charges.


Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Chief Customer Officer, said: “From family fun to winter sun, Aer Lingus’ Manchester network offers something for everyone.

“That is why we are thrilled to be adding extra flights from the North of England to Orlando during the Christmas school holidays - helping to make more dreams come true.

“The extra flights to Orlando will complement our existing transatlantic network which continues to prove popular with customers in the North of England.”

This winter, the flag carrier will offer direct flights from Manchester to Barbados, New York, and Orlando, in addition to direct services to Belfast-City and Dublin.

Holidaymakers can expect a warm and friendly welcome on board all Aer Lingus flights and enjoy delicious in-flight dining, complimentary inflight entertainment and a generous baggage allowance when flying long-haul.

All Aer Lingus transatlantic flights operated from Manchester to New York JFK, Orlando and Barbados are via the airline’s fleet of wide-bodied Airbus A330s offering spacious cabins and seating.

Customers can choose from flying in Economy Class, with seats in a 2x4x2 configuration and a 13” pitch, or the airline’s stylish Business Class which offer a 6.5ft fully lie flat bed, and a choice of seating combinations for couples and individual travellers.
