LEEDS Bradford passengers travelling to North America with Aer Lingus can now fast-track through Dublin Airport and save hours off their journey time to North America.

U.S. customers and pre-clearance facilities at Dublin airport can save as many as three hours queuing for security checks on arrival in the United States and Canada.

Aer Lingus Regional operates up to twice daily from Leeds to Dublin, increasing to up to three times daily from March 29. From Dublin Airport’s transatlantic hub, Aer Lingus flies to key North American destinations including New York, Boston, Chicago, Orlando, San Francisco, Washington and Toronto, and beyond to more than 100 US destinations with partner airlines.

Last year, Aer Lingus launched new services from Dublin to San Francisco and Toronto and from May this year, a new four-times-weekly service will commence to Washington DC. The San Francisco service will operate daily from May 1 and Aer Lingus will also have three daily departures to New York during the summer season.
