Aer Lingus Flight Deal: 50 Percent Off European Flights for Summer 2018*
Aer Lingus just made our summer vacation planning
much more interesting.
"Let's be honest: the first few days back from Christmas vacation can be kind of tough. If you're anything like us, you return to work and immediately start dreaming about your next vacation (preferably to somewhere sunny and warm). Luckily for all of us, Aer Lingus is here to make all our post-holiday dreams come true. The Irish airline recently announced its annual January sale, offering up to 50 percent off summer 2018 flights to Europe.
The half-off sale applies to Aer Lingus's European flights in and out of Ireland, available for travel from April 1 through September 30. City slickers, for example, can book a summer flight from Dublin to major hubs like like Paris and Amsterdam for just $42 (all prices reflect one-way tickets), or warmer cities like Barcelona and Athens for as low as $65. You could even get to some of Europe's best beach destinations for under $75, like Spain's Canary Islands and Portugal's Algarve region.
Don't worry, transatlantic travelers: Aer Lingus has some discounts for you as well. Flights from Ireland to 13 major North American cities—including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Boston, and Seattle—have been cut to as low as $249 each way, as part of a return trip. (To compare, Aer Lingus flights between NYC and Dublin typically run between $550 and $600 each way.)
Tickets are available now on Aer Lingus's website; the sale ends on midnight on January 16 for European flights, and midnight on January 29 for transatlantic flights. (The three million discounted seats are expected to go fast, so we recommend booking now rather than later!) Note that the prices reflect one-way tickets and do not include additional fees.
For flights within Europe, expect to pay extra for in-flight snacks and checked luggage (between $20-$40 per bag, depending on your destination). Transatlantic flights include a complimentary meal and one free checked bag per customer."
