Fancy going to the home of Starbucks?

Aer Lingus has announced a brand new flight to Seattle in Washington. The new North American route from Dublin to Seattle will begin in May, 2018.

It will be Ireland’s first ever direct service to the Washington State capital.

Fares to Seattle start from €259 each-way, including taxes and charges, when booked as a return trip.

Just to give you a taster of what you can expect in Seattle – it’s the home of some of the biggest brands around the world, including Starbucks, Microsoft and Amazon.

It’s also known for its music, with musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden and Fleet Foxes hailing from the city.

As always, customers travelling to North America with Aer Lingus can enjoy complimentary 23kg baggage allowance, complimentary onboard meals, in-flight entertainment and U.S. Customs and Border pre-clearance at Dublin and Shannon airport.

Speaking at the launch of Aer Lingus’ Dublin to Seattle route, Stephen Kavanagh, CEO said:

“We are delighted to announce Seattle as our latest transatlantic route for summer 2018. We believe this service will offer great value choices to our guests and further enhance Ireland’s trade and business links with the U.S. Since joining International Airlines Group some two years ago we have grown and strengthened our Dublin Gateway to North America and we look forward to continuing this development in the years to come.”
