Delta Air Lines Launches New Daily Dublin-Boston Service

Delta Air Lines has launched its new B757 daily service from Dublin to Boston. The service, which will operate until October, will complement Delta’s existing year-round services between Dublin and New York-JFK and its summer route from Dublin to Atlanta.

“We are delighted to see Delta’s route network going from strength to strength with a third transatlantic service from Dublin Airport,” said Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport Managing Director. “I have no doubt that this route will be a very popular destination due to the strong cultural and historical links that exist between Ireland and Boston. The new daily flight will offer further choice and flexibility for leisure and business passengers on both sides of the Atlantic.”

“Delta has been flying to Ireland for more than 20 years and it is now Delta’s fifth largest European market,” said Alex Antilla, Delta’s Director Transatlantic Network. “Boston has long-established ties with Ireland so we are proud to make the city more accessible through this new flight.”

Passengers travelling on Delta’s new service to Boston will use US Pre-clearance facilities at Dublin Airport, meaning passengers save time on arrival in the USA by completing all the necessary immigration and customs checks prior to departure. The only queue a pre-cleared passenger encounters on arrival in the USA is the taxi queue to their final destination.
