Happy Birthday Aer Lingus31.03.2014
Ireland’s national airline Aer Lingus is celebrating: the airline with the green shamrock on its tail fin is marking its 10th anniversary in Berlin. Aer Lingus has been connecting the Berlin-Brandenburg region with Ireland’s capital since 30 March 2004. And with great success: the Berlin-Schönefeld–Dublin route launched with four weekly flights. By 2005, the route was already being served by daily flights. Thanks to increasing passenger figures and flight frequencies, the state-of-the-art A320 now flies to Dublin 12 times a week. To date, around 1.2 million passengers have flown to and from Ireland with Aer Lingus.
With over 75 years of history, Aer Lingus is one of the oldest and most profitable airlines in Europe. The company currently operates a fleet of 48 aircraft, transporting around ten million passengers per year.
Dublin is always worth visiting from Berlin and Brandenburg. With a population of almost one million, Dublin is not just the capital, but also the biggest city in Ireland. Art lovers will be in their element in Dublin’s National Museum and the Trinity College park and campus is ideal for long walks. Those wanting to be transported back in time should visit Dublin Castle, the heart of Irish history. And no trip to Dublin would be complete, of course, without visiting any of the around 1,000 legendary pubs.
