Liverpool to North America

Aer Lingus is to reintroduce flights between Liverpool and Dublin on 23 October offering not only a “day business” service in both directions but a connection with the Irish airline's US gateway customs and immigration service.

Departure times for the flights, which will be airborne for less than 30 minutes and are scheduled to take just 50 minutes overall, are Dublin 07:15 (arrive 08:05) and 18:15 (19:05) with the returns from Liverpool at 08:40 (09:35) and 19:40 (20:35).

From Dublin onward flights are available to destinations including Boston, Chicago, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, Toronto and Washington, with the morning flight from Liverpool timed to enable convenient transfer times for passengers at Dublin Airport of as little as 75 minutes.
Because all parts of the US Customs and Border Protection pre-clearance process are completed at Dublin, Aer Lingus customers clear the US authorities without the hassle which is often the case at the American airports.  Ireland is the only European country to offer these facilities and means that customers travelling to the US via Ireland are seen as domestic arriving passengers.  Described by Aer Lingus as ‘you can arrive before you depart’,  this enables a speedy exit after arriving on the airline’s long haul flights and avoids often lengthy arrivals processing queues.  www.aerlingus.com
