Aer Lingus announced a few months ago the launch of AerSpace, a new premium travel experience for short haul guests, commencing 1st September 2019. 

AerSpace guests flying to select destinations across the UK and Europe will be guaranteed an aisle or window seat on the first row of the aircraft with the middle seat left unoccupied for a roomier and more efficient travel experience.

For added convenience, AerSpace guests will also enjoy reserved cabin space directly overhead and arrive at their destination more relaxed and refreshed with complimentary lounge access, Fast Track security, priority boarding and on-board refreshments from the Aer Lingus’ onboard menu.

Designed with guests’ needs in mind, AerSpace is a unique offering in Europe. It promises a seamless travel experience catering for those who require more space and comfort whether it be for business or leisure. In terms of Aer Lingus’ most popular short haul destinations, London, Paris, Manchester and Barcelona top the list. Recognising that the Dublin – London corridor is one of the busiest business corridors globally, Aer Lingus bookings for London indicate that 25% of guests travel to the UK capital for business purposes.

Commenting on the launch, Susanne Carberry, Director of Network Revenue and Loyalty, Aer Lingus, said:

“We are thrilled to introduce a new fare option which gives greater comfort and convenience to our guests. At Aer Lingus we are committed to innovating our product offering to meet travellers’ ever-changing needs. AerSpace guests will have reserved seating in row 1 on our most popular routes, leaving the middle seat free and allowing more space to work or simply relax as they fly. 

“Not only will those choosing AerSpace enjoy a suite of complimentary services including lounge access and priority boarding, AerClub members will also collect Avios on their AerSpace purchase. We are proud to launch AerSpace in response to feedback from our guests seeking a more premium and spacious travel experience when flying short haul with Aer Lingus.”

AerSpace enhances Aer Lingus’ fare offering, which also includes Saver, the lowest fare option, Plus, and Advantage, together offering choice to cater for travellers’ individual needs. AerSpace is available to book now for travel from 01 September 2019. Fares from €129 each-way including taxes and charges.
