Aer Lingus to launch Miami route in 2017
The new route will be served by A330-200 aircraft that seats 266 passengers.
“Our residents will soon have nonstop service to the beautiful, historic city of Dublin, as well as to all the connecting flights that city’s strategic location provides. Congratulations to Aer Lingus and to MIA, for landing another key international route and for adding to its record number of 107 airlines,” said Carlos A. Gimenez, mayor, Miami-Dade County.
In addition to becoming the 24th European route at MIA, Dublin will be the airport’s first pre-clearance trans-Atlantic destination - allowing passengers to have their passports processed and receive US Customs and Border Protection clearance before they leave Ireland, arriving in Miami as domestic fliers.
Dublin marks MIA’s fourth international route launch announcement for 2017.

The four new airlines in 2017 will add to MIA’s current total of 104 carriers – the most at any US airport. MIA is also home to seven low-cost carriers.
“We look forward to developing our new connection with Ireland and to strengthening our ties all across Europe," said Emilio T. González, director, Miami-Dade Aviation.
