Aer Lingus chooses Minneapolis, Montreal over Pittsburgh for Dublin flights
Pittsburgh didn’t have the luck of the Irish — at least not yet.
Aer Lingus passed on Pittsburgh for its newest nonstop flights to Dublin from North America.
The airline chose to launch flights to Dublin from Minneapolis and Montreal, the Dublin-based carrier announced Wednesday.
The Irish Times reported last month that the airline was considering launching service to Pittsburgh as one of its two new North American destinations.
Pittsburgh International Airport has never had a nonstop flight to Dublin, airport spokesman Bob Kerlik has said.
Since 2016, the airport has launched nonstop flights to Frankfurt, Germany, and Reykjavik, Iceland. British Airways is launching flights to London on April 2 . Delta Air Lines ended its longstanding nonstop flight to Paris this month.
