History of Aer Lingus

Aer Lingus was founded by the government in 1936 in order to provide the first possibilities of air service to and from Ireland. The inaugural trips were flights to Bristol in May of that same year with a small aircraft with seating for only 6. Aer Lingus celebrated its first transatlantic flight from Shannon to New York in April of 1958, which later became a twice-weekly service. In the early 1990s regular service began between Ireland and the USA with the arrival of the Airbus. After the 9/11 attacks, business was severely hit, and since then Aer Lingus has begun concentrating more on their European destinations instead of the USA and Britain. It began operating more flights to the USA recently, with cheap flights to Orlando, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. Today Aer Lingus is cutting back routes and focusing more on its regional services and has opened up a base at London Gatwick Airport.
