This means you arrive in the United States like a domestic passenger, thereby avoiding all the queues and delays.

Face masks are mandatory

The IAG-owned airline would like to remind its customers that it puts the well being and safety of its employees and passengers above all else. Earlier this year, to make flying as safe as possible during the COVID-19 global pandemic, Aer Lingus introduced measures in line with guidance from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention & Control).

Everyone at Aer Lingus practices safe social distancing and would like to remind passengers that face masks are mandatory on all Aer Lingus flights. The “Book with Confidence” seems like a sweet deal, and the ability to clear US Customs and Immigration in Dublin before your flight is fantastic.
