Travel: Aer Lingus extends its January seat sale due to soaring demand to fly

Are you already planning your first holiday of 2022?

Aer Lingus has today announced an extension of its January Seat Sale as a result of the encouraging increase in demand from consumers to fly following the recent easing of travel restrictions.

With two million seats on sale and offers including up to 20 per cent off European and UK travel as well as flights to North America up for grabs from just €169 each way as part of a return trip, there has never been a better time to book a getaway.

Whether its sandy beaches, city breaks, family fun, or active adventures you’re seeking, Aer Lingus has offers for all with 20 per cent off European travel.

Research has also found that Irish consumers are keen to get back stateside according to recent Aer Lingus search data, with searches to US cities such as New York, Boston, and Chicago all up compared to the days prior to the lifting of restrictions.

With 13 direct routes between North America and Ireland now is the time to plan a trip stateside with Aer Lingus in 2022. From the theme parks in Orlando, shopping in New York, to enjoying the history of Washington D.C. or a trip to Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day, there is so much to explore with Aer Lingus this spring with travel from €169 each way as part of a return trip.


In March, Aer Lingus will re-introduce flights to the USA from Shannon, with 14 flights a week to New York and Boston.

Speaking on the January sale Bill Byrne, Director of Global Sales says;

“We are delighted to extend our January sale until midnight 24th January, for travel from 01st February 2022 until 31st May 2022.

Our recent search data indicates that consumer confidence in travel is returning following the lifting of travel restrictions for double-vaccinated travellers, and it’s our hope that extending our sale will give those who are looking forward to a holiday in 2022 some extra time to plan that long-awaited trip to Europe or the US and still avail of these great offers.”

To make travel easier, Aer Lingus has partnered with VeriFLY. By downloading the VeriFLY app and uploading Covid-19 related documentation required for their destination, Aer Lingus customers can ensure that all of their Covid-19 related documentation is verified before travel.
