Italy has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in recent years and you'll be happy to know that Aer Lingus has added direct flights from Dublin to Italian cities Brindisi, Puglia and Alghero, Sardinia from next year.

Summer 2020 will also see Aer Lingus’ best ever capacity to North America with 1.9 million seats on sale to transatlantic destinations.

Orlando, Florida will move from a four flights per week service to six flights per week while the Miami service will increase from two to three flights per week.

Commenting on the launch of the 2020 summer schedule, David Shepherd, Chief Commercial Officer, Aer Lingus, said:

"We are thrilled to offer Irish guests even more ways to explore Europe with the addition of two new direct routes from Dublin to Italy - Brindisi, Puglia and Alghero in Sardinia - and our new routes from Shannon direct to Paris and Barcelona.

"Our ambition for the future of Aer Lingus is underpinned by a profitable, sustainable short-haul network and our summer 2020 schedule is testament to this commitment.

"Transatlantic growth continues to be our priority, and this is being realised in 2020 with the increased frequency and capacity on many direct routes from Dublin. Not only does this strengthen Ireland’s connectivity with the United States but creates a greater, more efficient connection via Dublin for our neighbours in UK and Europe."
