Aer Lingus A320 Routes

Thu Sep 01, 2005 6:00 am

What routes does Aer Lingus operate their A320s? I tried a photo search and on the first few pages found only AMS, LHR, Faro, and a few more, but I'd like to know all the routes they fly regularly. Thanks for your help!

I know that I am flying an EI A320 from DUB - SXF on December 30 and from HAM - DUB on January 6, if that helps. I also looked at PRG for those dates, and it was scheduled to there too.

Also, I am pretty sure it's on the routes to Riga, Rome, and Milan too on a regular basis...Paris, Madrid, and Zurich too?

Most flights to MAN are operated by 320s nowadays, although the odd 735 appears. Think most DUB-UK flights are now on 320s, as it most of europe. Think their last 735s are about to leave for Pulkovo in Russia.

To Zurich. I flew each way on a A 320: Jul 30 ZRH-DUB and Aug 13 DUB-ZRH.
BTW fully booked. F/A ok, but no free service at all. Flights were ok but like an LCC, only was the fare higher.

Just about every European route is operated by the 320's as only 2 or 3 737's remain inthe fleet and are about to be retired from service (if they haven't already been retired). The 321's are operated mainly on UK routes I believe. A 330 is even used on certain DUB-AGP services. Remember EI's fleet by the end of this year will comprise:

6 A321's
21 A320's
4 A330-300's
3 A330-200's

So as you can see, you are more than likely to be on a 320.

Regards
Long live Aer Lingus!

Yep the 321s are almost exclusivly used on routes from Ireland to the UK (Primarily LHR). There are 3 735s left in the fleet and no more 734s. All remaining 735s will go to Pulkovo aviation in the Ukraine in the coming months as the last 3 of the 320s are delivered. At least one 735s, EI-CDG, is already painted in Pulkovos blue and white colour scheme (without the titles). So it can be taken that by the end of the year you will have a 99% chance of being on a 320 on all of the mainland european to ireland routes.
