Discover Denver with Aer Lingus as inaugural flight takes off

Aer Lingus’ inaugural service direct to Denver, Colorado, took to the skies at 3:30pm yesterday from Dublin Airport, as the Irish airline continues to expand its transatlantic offering. This new route marks the airline’s largest ever North American network, offering British customers access to even more US cities with the added benefit of US Pre-Clearance in Dublin.

As of yesterday, Aer Lingus will offer four weekly flights between Dublin and Denver, with flights operated by the airline’s widebody Airbus A330 aircraft.

Flights have been timed to allow seamless connections to and from the airline’s extensive British network, including London Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and Liverpool.

Known as the ‘Mile High City’, Denver combines urban sophistication and natural beauty, with the added bonus of 300 days of sunshine.

Customers looking to dive into Denver, can enjoy one-way fares from the UK from as little as £379, including taxes and charges.


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.”

Situated against the stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is a leading destination for leisure travel and a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with spectacular scenery, hiking, and outdoor pursuits.

The city itself offers plenty of culture and art, has vibrant nightlife, with iconic concerts at the renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre and local craft breweries.

Those flying to Colorado with Aer Lingus will benefit from Dublin Airport’s US Pre-Clearance facility, allowing customers to pre-clear all US immigration and customs formalities pre-departure, meaning you arrive as a domestic passenger.

Aer Lingus’ strategic expansion of its North American network reflects its commitment to its Dublin Hub strategy, offering seamless connections from the UK to North America.

Customers flying to North America with Aer Lingus 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.
