Now available for sale on Aerlingus.com, the aircraft will operate on weekends during the peak summer 2016 period from Dublin to popular French destinations Nice, Lyon and Perpignan and to Bilbao and Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

Keith Butler, Chief Commercial Officer, Aer Lingus, said: “We are delighted to be introducing additional capacity from Dublin to Southern France and Northern Spain during the peak summer 2016 period. Partnering with BA CityFlyer on this route allows Aer Lingus to take advantage of additional capacity available within International Airlines Group during the busy summer peak season by utilising an Embraer aircraft that provides exceptional comfort and a guaranteed aisle or window seat to our guests.

“The addition of these weekend services provides Aer Lingus with the opportunity to cater for the increased demand that we are seeing during the peak summer 2016 period and provides our guests with additional choice when flying to one of these popular destinations.

“With Euro 2016 also taking place during June, these additional flights provide Irish soccer fans with extra options when travelling to France for the tournament.”

The Embraer 190 is a modern twin-engine jet airliner with a total capacity of 98 seats. The aircraft offers ample space in the guest cabin, with easy access to the overhead lockers and guest benefits including no middle seats (exclusively window and aisle seats).
