American Airlines will fly direct from Dublin to Dallas from next June.
The daily service will be Ireland’s first direct flight to the Texan city, which is the airline's largest hub for connecting traffic to onward destinations in the United States and Latin America.
Speaking about the announcement, Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison, said: “Dallas is an excellent addition to the existing route network from Dublin Airport and we’re delighted that American Airlines will be serving this market with a daily summer service from next year. This new route will further grow tourism and trade between Ireland and the US, and we look forward to working closely with American to promote the new service on both sides of the Atlantic".
“Connecting Dublin with Dallas Fort Worth provides Irish travellers with direct access to the largest hub of American, the world’s largest airline,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Vice President, Network and Schedule Planning. “This is the first time Ireland and Texas have been connected with a direct flight and the new service will meet the increased demand for travel between both markets. From Dallas, Irish travellers can connect onto top onward destinations including Hawaii, Las Vegas, Cancun, Los Angeles and New Orleans.”
The new summer service will begin on June 6 and will run until September 28, 2019.
