Irish low-cost carrier Aer Lingus is planning to expand its flight frequencies and passenger capacity to North America by using smaller aircraft and by harnessing its codeshare deals.
The airline plans to wet-lease three Boeing 757-200 aircraft to use on trans-atlantic flights from small cities in the US in addition to serving large cities with its A330 fleet.
Aer Lingus also has partnerships with United Airlines and JetBlue with codeshare arrangements at the two US airlines’ key hubs. It codeshares on JetBlue flights out of Boston and New York, and on United flights out of Chicago and Washington Dulles.
