Aer Lingus seeking to add 15 new United States routes



Aer Lingus is evaluating more than 15 North American routes to which it could fly while reversing its fleet.

In a call with journalists, chief executive Sean Doyle said the airline has an "extensive review process in progress" to look at the opportunities for the new aircraft to be expected to be delivered.

"We are evaluating to the north of the 15 [routes] At the moment and this will increase with the ability to reach the technology that reaches us, "said Mr. Doyle.

As for how many markets the operator owned by IAG will depend on "the valuable business that we can negotiate to enter those markets," added Mr. Doyle.

Mr. Doyle's comments came after revenues rose almost 9 percent in Aer Lingus last year and operating profits reached a record of 305 million euros while increasing capacity and cutting back some of their costs.

Total revenues for the airline were just over 2,000 million euros last year, with passenger revenues almost 9% up to 1,900 million euros and revenues per load increased by almost 15% and 54 million.
