The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) is pleased to announce that Aer Lingus has extended the schedule for its popular nonstop service from Dublin Airport to Bradley International Airport, beyond the summer season, making it an almost year-round service.

The Irish flag carrier relaunched operations from Dublin Airport to Bradley International Airport earlier this year and will now continue, offering almost year-round connectivity. The Dublin Airport to Bradley International Airport route offers customers seamless connections to Hartford, Connecticut, New England and other destinations across the US.

The new schedule has been expanded to include:

  • Now through October 26, 2023: Daily Flights
  • October 28, 2023 through January 5, 2024: 3 x Weekly Flights
  • January 6, 2024 through March 12, 2024: No Flight Operations
  • March 13, 2023 through March 28, 2024: 3 x Weekly Flights
  • March 30, 2024 through October 2024: Daily Flights

“It has been great to have Aer Lingus back at Bradley International Airport,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., CAA Executive Director. “We’re thrilled that our passengers will now continue to have more opportunities to experience Aer Lingus’ exceptional service and to visit Connecticut and beyond.”

The route is operated by an A321neo LR aircraft, one of the most sustainable aircraft crossing the Atlantic, delivering up to 20% reduction in fuel burn and CO2 emissions and close to 50% reduction in noise footprint when compared to previous generation aircraft.

Reid Moody, Aer Lingus Chief Strategy and Planning Officer said: “The extension of our nonstop Dublin Airport to Bradley International Airport service reflects Aer Lingus’ commitment to our North American expansion, as we grow the number of transatlantic routes from our Dublin hub. The route is Bradley’s only direct service to and from Europe and continues to perform well, reflecting Aer Lingus’ ability to connect Irish customers not only with Hartford, but onwards to the rest of the United States.”

In addition to the comfortable experience offered onboard the A321neo LR aircraft, transatlantic travelers will once again have the opportunity to enjoy high-speed internet access, an extensive in-flight entertainment selection, gourmet meals and the airline’s award-winning cabin service.

Individuals traveling with Aer Lingus will also benefit from the added convenience of Dublin Airport, which offers U.S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance. This means that Bradley International Airport bound passengers will be able to complete all necessary US-entry requirements in Dublin ahead of their departure. Dublin Airport is one of only a few airports outside North America that offers a US Preclearance facility. At Bradley International Airport, travelers arrive at the airport’s main terminal, Terminal A.
