Aer Lingus is launching three new services to the United States next year.
It's relaunching its route between Dublin and Los Angeles from next May, and will fly between the cities five times a week.
A route between Dublin and Newark in New Jersey will commence in September 2016 and operate daily.
Aer Lingus, bought this year by IAG for €1.36bn, also confirmed that it will fly between Dublin and Hartford, Connecticut from next September. The service will operate daily.
IAG wants to drive more transatlantic traffic through Dublin from the UK, and also capitalise on improving demand in Ireland as the economy recovers.
Today's announcements were made by IAG chief executive Willie Walsh, Aer Lingus chief executive Stephen Kavanagh, and Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe.
