Aer Lingus Commits to Development of its Long-Haul Network

New long-haul non-stop service from Dublin to Dubai

Aer Lingus has today entered a new phase of its development with the announcement of a new non-stop service from Dublin to Dubai. Commencing March 2006, the service will operate three times a week and is expected to carry 70,000 passengers in the first year. This is the first time Aer Lingus has offered a long-haul destination outside of the USA and is the first step in the expansion of its new long-haul network.

Making the announcement, Aer Lingus Chief Executive Dermot Mannion said "This is a very positive step for the airline and demonstrates our commitment to the development of a low fares, long-haul strategy, embracing new routes with significant growth potential. Our twin track strategy encompasses both short-haul and long-haul routes, which provides us with a competitive edge, a unique offering and furthermore, enhanced choice for our customers.

Dubai is recognised as the business centre of the Middle East. In addition it has seen a huge growth in tourism from the Irish market over the last 10 years. Dubai will also provide a unique growth opportunity for Irish tourism from new and existing markets. These factors give us confidence that this route will be a major success."

In addition to being an attractive location in its own right, Dubai is the leading hub in the Middle East for destinations such as Bangkok, Hong Kong and Sydney.

Dubai will be the fifth route in the Aer Lingus long-haul network along with New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles. In all, Aer Lingus has announced sixteen new routes in 2005. The eight-hour non-stop flight of 3682 miles to Dubai International Airport will be serviced by three Airbus A330 aircraft.

Lead in fares will start from ?199 one-way including taxes and will be on sale at www.aerlingus.com from 3rd November 2005.

2 x 735s. I see CDG (at least) is in Pulkovo colours and has been for about a month, the most recent shot of CDH I've seen is in EI colours. EI will take another two 320 in the next few months (EI-DER and DES) to conclude the expansion of that fleet (21 in all).

Did EIN stop the EI138/139 from SNN to BOS so they could have the a/c to go to Dubai?

MCO - Aerlingus
SFB - Aviajet

EI2002 - MCO - DUB via SNN

Maybe...Just matbe the SNN website is wrong..

However as we have seemed to again stry off topic and somehow end up talking about SNN, this has got boring.
