Los Angeles (LAX) is once again reconnected to Dublin (DUB) with a nonstop service thanks to Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus.

Service on the route resumed on Thursday, May 12, 2022, after more than a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

“We are delighted to be resuming our Los Angeles route for the first time since March 2020 and reuniting friends, family, and businesses,” said Susanna Carberry, Chief Customer Officer at Aer Lingus.

Here’s everything you need to know about Aer Lingus’ latest route resumption.

Los Angeles (LAX) to Dublin (DUB)

Aer Lingus will serve The City of Angels from Dublin (DUB) on a once-daily basis, up from just 4 times per week before the pandemic.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Depart Dublin (DUB) 3:15 p.m. — Arrive Los Angeles (LAX) 6:15 p.m.
  • Depart Los Angeles (LAX) 8 p.m. — Arrive Dublin (DUB) 2:10 p.m. (+1)

You can expect to fly on one of Aer Lingus’ fleet of Airbus A330 variants on the route. The A330-200s have 23 lie-flat seats in business and between 243 and 248 seats in economy (depending on the aircraft), while the larger A330-300 variant comprises 30 lie-flat business class seats and 287 seats down the back.

Unfortunately, 8,338-kilometer (5,181 miles) route is out of the range of the airline’s start-of-the-art Airbus A321 LR aircraft that it operates on some of its East Coast routes from Dublin (DUB), Shannon (SNN), and Manchester (MAN) in the U.K.

The cheapest economy ticket we’re seeing for the LA to Dublin route starts at around $582 — that’s pretty good value.

Hot Tip: You can also earn points through a select few U.S. credit cards that you can then redeem through Aer Lingus AerClub instead of using cash for your flights.

Aer Lingus in the U.S.

LA will be Aer Lingus’ second nonstop service to America’s West Coast, joining San Francisco (SFO), which resumed in April 2022. A third nonstop service to the West Coast will restart to Seattle (SEA) as of July 7, 2022.

When Seattle (SEA) joins in July, Aer Lingus will operate a total of 16 nonstop services from Ireland and the U.K. to America.

The last routes to make it back into flight schedules are typically those that are thinner, leisure routes, like Los Angeles (LAX) to Dublin (DUB).

Final Thoughts

The Flying Shamrock has finally made its return to Los Angeles (LAX) as the Irish flag carrier rebuilds its U.S. route network.

Aer Lingus’ nonstop daily service between the Irish capital of Dublin (DUB) and LA is back and hopefully for good this time.
