Aer Lingus All Set to Fly Dublin-Minneapolis/St Paul

Aer Lingus had a good ambiance in the cool venue Zozimus for the trade launch of the airline’s new transatlantic service from Dublin to Minneapolis-St Paul, with the first flight scheduled for 1 July.

These flights were to be operated by the new Airbus A321 Neo but, due to the delayed delivery of this aircraft, they will now be operated by a B757 in a two-class configuration, Business and Economy.

Minneapolis, Minnesota’s largest city, is known as The City of Lakes. It is also a great shopping destination with no sales tax on clothing or footwear. Mall of America, which attracts 42 million shoppers per annum, is the largest shopping centre in North America.

It is the state that gave two great music icons, Prince and Bob Dylan, to the world.
