Like many airlines, Aer Lingus has a book with confidence policy in place at the moment. This is now being extended, giving peace of mind for booking flights all the way through next summer.

At the same time, a lot of the network is coming back online, another sign that travel is returning to normal. Let’s have a look at the various details.

Book With Confidence

Perhaps the most important policy around is the book with confidence one that some airlines do. Aer Lingus have extended theirs to cover all flights up to 30 September 2022. You can swap all fares except Saver for a voucher, which protects your cash for later re-use.

This is now similar to British Airways (they are both part of the same airline group). In fact, the BA policy is so good that I have spent a bunch of money on flights for 2022, safe in the knowledge that if all goes pear shaped, I’ll be able to re-use my cash on future travel.

Summer Flying Schedule

Aer Lingus’ transatlantic network is going to be extensive next year. This will include flights from Dublin to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York JFK, New York Newark (EWR), Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington DC. There will also be services from Shannon to New York JFK and Boston, as well as Manchester to New York JFK and Orlando.

European routes confirmed to be continuing or operating again next year are pretty much what they had pre-pandemic. Lots of people will find they can go where they want to go on holidays next year.

Overall Thoughts

Great to see the Aer Lingus book with confidence policy matching that of British Airways. This is one of the most generous in the industry and I am a big fan of it.

With the network returning to normal, it looks like 2022 might see some serious airline profitability again. Here’s hoping all those dreams come true for the aviation industry.
