Aer Lingus today said it is considering opening up a direct route to Dallas in Texas following the success of its San Francisco and Toronto services.
The airline's chief executive, Christoph Mueller, said the airline is intent on starting new routes and increasing capacity to North America after enjoying its best trading in at least five years and reversing a profit warning it issued in June, Irish American publication, Irish Central reported.
And in an interview with the Irish Independent, Mueller confirmed that new services are already on track and would come to fruition before he leaves the Irish airline next May.
He said: "I will not mention any destinations, but we have very concrete plans. There is more good news to come and that will happen while I am still here."
It's likely that the identity of the new services will come to light in the coming months, as guidelines dictate that the routes must be communicated to the trade by the end of the third quarter in order to be in place for next summer.
