Dublin Airport and Delta Air Lines celebrated the launch of a new daily service from Dublin to Boston this morning.
The new service, which will operate from May until October, complements Delta’s existing year-round services between Dublin and New York-JFK and its summer route from Dublin to Atlanta.
Welcoming the new service, Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said “We are delighted to see Delta’s route network going from strength to strength with a third transatlantic service from Dublin Airport.”
“I have no doubt that this route will be a very popular destination due to the strong cultural and historical links that exist between Ireland and Boston.”
He added that “the new daily flight will offer further choice and flexibility for leisure and business passengers on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Alex Antilla, Delta’s director Transatlantic Network said “Delta has been flying to Ireland for more than 20 years and it is now Delta’s fifth largest European market.”
“Boston has long-established ties with Ireland so we are proud to make the city more accessible through this new flight.”
