Aer Lingus has launched a North American sale offering €100 off transatlantic flights, provided you book by midnight on Monday, May 8th.

The offer applies to direct return flights to Toronto and its US destinations, with travel from July 1 to October 31 of this year.

Sale fares start from Dublin to Hartford, Newark and JFK at €199 each way, with Toronto from €214 each-way - when booked as part of a return trip.

Prices vary hugely depending on dates and routes, however.

Aer Lingus's transatlantic business has more than doubled in the last five years, with a new direct flight to Miami launching this September 1st.

Its sale fares are more expensive than lead-in offers from Norwegian, which starts flying from Dublin, Cork, Shannon and Belfast to the US this July, but they do include a meal and a free 23kg checked bag, which are extras on the budget flights.

In other news, Norwegian says it hopes to offer US immigration preclearance to passengers departing on its flights from Dublin and Shannon.

"Plans are currently being finalised," a spokesperson said.

Aer Lingus is expecting delivery of another new Airbus A330 at the end of 2017, which it says will allow further transatlantic growth in 2018.
