DAA Welcomes AA’s New Dublin – New York JFK Service

The Dublin Airport Authority has welcomed yesterday’s announcement by American Airlines that it is to begin a new daily Dublin – New York JFK service from next June.

American will operate the new year-round service from Terminal 2 with a B757-200 in conjunction with its Atlantic joint business partners British Airways and Iberia. 

American currently operates six flights weekly between Dublin and Chicago O’Hare Airport and has been serving Dublin since 2005.

“This is excellent news for the Irish economy and for Dublin Airport,” said Oliver Cussen, DAA Interim Chief Executive. “Next summer, Dublin Airport will have 12 daily scheduled flights to nine different US airports. That puts Dublin Airport ahead of its European competitors such as Manchester and Gatwick airports in terms of US connectivity. Ireland is the premier location for US foreign direct investment and the United States is also a major inbound tourism market.”

Graham Bell, American Airline’s Sales Director UK and Ireland, said: “Dublin is an important market for American and I am delighted that we can now offer a direct flight to New York JFK to complement the existing flight that we operate direct to Chicago O’Hare. Both have excellent onward connections, opening up the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean to our Irish customers.”

Subject to government approval, the new service will go on sale from 4th November. The daily flight, which will have a 09.00 departure and a 06.55 arrival time in Dublin, will be serviced by a two-class Boeing 757-200. US-bound passengers using the new service will have access to the US Customs pre-clearance facility at Dublin, saving time on entry into the USA.
