Las Vegas is America’s gambling den, a city where you can party all night and sleep all day – without judgement. It was also the city with the largest unserved direct demand out of Dublin, which makes the Aer Lingus decision to start flying there a logical one.

Since many passengers from Europe connect over Dublin to the USA, taking advantage of US Immigration Preclearance, it is sure to prove popular. Passengers in the UK will find it particularly easy to connect over Dublin when compared to places like Heathrow.

Las Vegas Schedule

Flights begin on 25 October 2024, with services operating three times per week with an Airbus A330. You can fly on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, which should work quite well for leisure travellers.

EI51 will depart from Dublin at 15:20, arriving in Las Vegas 10 hours and 30 minutes later, landing at 17:50. The return is EI50, which leaves LAS at 19:35, landing back in Ireland 9 hours and 35 minutes later at 13:10 the following day.

But I Don’t Like Gambling!

Fear not, as Las Vegas is also a convenient jumping off point for nearby areas in the United States. For example, in a couple of hours drive you could see places such as Bryce Canyon or Zion National Park.

It’s also just a little further to world renowned attractions, such as the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Of course, Sedona and Four Corners is also within reach. Therefore, it may be worth heading to Vegas to avoid the glittering gambling paradise altogether.

Overall Thoughts

Aer Lingus are now going to be flying to Las Vegas, which should prove popular for people needing to get to that part of the world. Whether it’s for a holiday filled with gambling and the famous Vegas shows, or whether it’s for an outdoorsy time away, there are options for all.
