Nonstop service between Bradley International Airport and Dublin, Ireland — the Windsor Locks airport’s only direct service to Europe — will return following a pause due to the pandemic, Gov. Ned Lamont and the Connecticut Airport Authority announced Thursday.

Aer Lingus will resume the daily international flight starting March 26, 2023. It will run on a seasonal basis through October until year-round demand is realized, the announcement says.

The service will use an Airbus A321neo LR aircraft, which features business and economy class cabins.

From Dublin, travelers can connect with flights to 28 airports in the U.K. and Europe, including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome and Prague.

“Bradley has a reputation as being an accessible, convenient airport that makes travel for people who live throughout the Northeast easier, and I am excited that Aer Lingus is bringing its popular transatlantic service back to the airport,” Lamont said. “Bradley is a key economic driver for our state, and the more airlines and destinations that we can add from the airport, the more attractive Connecticut becomes to companies that are seeking to grow their own operations here.”

Aer Lingus is expanding in North America, increasing flights from its Dublin hub, the airline said.

Aer Lingus began operations at Bradley in 2016. Bradley is trying to add new direct routes to other airports, including in London. 

Tickets are available, with roundtrips to Ireland starting from $459 and to Europe from $659 including taxes and charges.
