Aer Lingus announced today that it will launch nonstop flights between Cleveland, Ohio (CLE) and Dublin, Ireland (DUB) as of May 19, 2023.

“This is a significant announcement for Aer Lingus as we deliver on our ambition to grow our transatlantic network,” said Reid Moody, Chief Strategy and Planning Officer at Aer Lingus. “The commencement of a new route, accompanied with further network connectivity, is an exciting milestone for the airline during a critical time of recovery for our business.”

Here’s what we know so far about this exciting new route connecting Ohio to the Emerald Isle.

Cleveland Gets Nonstop Transatlantic Service Thanks to Aer Lingus

Once it launches, Aer Lingus’ nonstop service to Dublin will be Cleveland’s only nonstop transatlantic flight.

It might strike you as odd that Cleveland will be connected to Dublin with nonstop flights, but the Cleveland City Council provided a grant to the tune of $600,000 to maintain the route for 3 years. This certainly contributed to the viability of the service.

The flight will operate 4 times weekly according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Dublin (DUB) 3:30 p.m. — Arrive Cleveland (CLE) 6:50 p.m.
  • Depart Cleveland (CLE) 8:20 p.m. — Arrive Dublin (DUB) 8:50 a.m. (+1)

Not only will Cleveland get nonstop service to Ireland, but residents of the area will be able to access easy connections to over 20 destinations across Europe via Aer Lingus’ hub in Dublin.

“We are truly excited for the opportunity to have nonstop service for travelers to connect to Ireland and the many other European destinations. Our team has worked for years to bring this route to Cleveland for our community,” said Dennis Kramer, Airport Director at Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

The route will be operated by Aer Lingus’ Airbus A321neo aircraft which feature lie-flat seats in business class.

Aer Lingus has an expansive route network from its base in Dublin to North America. The Irish flag carrier offers nonstop service to Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Orlando (MCO), Philadelphia (PHL), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), Toronto (YYZ), and Washington, D.C. (IAD).

The airline also operates nonstop services from Manchester (MAN) and Shannon (SNN) to the U.S.
