Aer Lingus is the national flight company for Ireland with their hub airport in Dublin. Leaving from both Gatwick and Heathrow, Aer Lingus connects travellers to Dublin, Cork and Shannon as well as a number of other European and North American destinations. It is Ireland’s second largest airline and the top choice for British travellers for cheap flights to Dublin.
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.
Infants travelling on the laps of their accompanying adults are charged £20 or the equivalent of a one-way fare on short-haul flights. On flights to the USA, infants are charged 10% of the adult fare.
