Aer Lingus To Scale Back Shannon-JFK Route Due To Aircraft Delivery Issue

Aer Lingus is scaling back its Shannon-New York service this summer because of an issue in securing aircraft.

The airline was due to take delivery of four Airbus planes this summer, but they’ve now been delayed, forcing the airline to re-think its schedule.

It’s postponing a new Dublin-Montreal service for a year, and cutting frequency on three other transatlantic services from Dublin, as well as flights from Shannon to JFK Airport.


The service will fly five-times-a-week instead of six, and the airline says all passengers scheduled to fly on the affected flights will be offered alternative flights at no extra cost.
