American Airlines will re-launch its daily nonstop flight between Dublin and Chicago O’Hare International Airport on 4th April 2012. The route will be operated using two-class Boeing 767-300 aircraft offering 219 seats, including 28 in Business Class.
Flight AA93 departs Dublin at 10.00 and arrives Chicago at 12.20. Flight AA92 departs Chicago at 18.35 and arrives Dublin at 08.00 the following day.
On arrival in Chicago, passengers will be treated as domestic rather than international following US Immigration Pre-Clearance in Dublin. They will be allowed to make connections in American’s Terminal 3 at O’Hare and will not need to claim and re-check baggage before continuing on their next flight. In Dublin passengers will use Terminal 2 and will have access to American Airlines self-service machines that enable a range of transactions, including re-printing of boarding passes, seat selection and, of course, check-in (which is also available online).
Graham Bell, Director of Sales UK and Ireland, said: “We are excited to be returning to Dublin in 2012. Our flight to Chicago in 2011 proved very popular and we provide a great connection not only to one of the world’s most exciting cities but also to the many onward destinations we serve throughout the USA. We work closely with our joint business partners at British Airways as we continue to serve the needs of our customers in Ireland.”
Two recent hotel openings in Chicago were the Public Chicago in October 2011 and the first US-based Radisson Blu in November 2011. The new Langham Chicago Hotel will open in the autumn.
