Aer Lingus Introduces New Saver Fare

Aer Lingus reaffirms itself as the leading value carrier for transatlantic flights

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 31, 2017) -

  • Today's traveller has diverse needs and requires greater choice
  • Save even more on 4-star transatlantic travel to Ireland

Aer Lingus has introduced the brand new Saver Fare, its new low fare on direct, transatlantic flights to Ireland. Available exclusively at, the new Saver Fare is designed to meet the diverse needs of today's traveller, offering guests more choice and flexibility.

The introduction of Saver Fare is aimed at providing greater choice to today's traveller. This is in addition to our existing all-inclusive Smart Fare offering.

Perfect for those looking to travel light on direct flights between Aer Lingus' North American gateways and Ireland, the new Saver Fare includes one piece of 22lbs. cabin baggage, in-flight entertainment and on-board meals. Guests can then choose from a range of added on extras, from checked baggage, seat selection, blanket, headphones, at additional cost.

Our all-inclusive Smart Fare option, which includes checked baggage, free seat selection, blanket and headphones is available as always and still offers our guests exceptional value across the Atlantic. For guests looking to make a booking with no fuss and enjoy all the extras that have always been included can choose the Smart Fare.

Mike Rutter, Aer Lingus Chief Operating Officer, said:

"At Aer Lingus we are committed to offering our guests the best value with the best service across our network and from North America. We recognize that there is not a one-size fits all for today's traveller and we want to provide an array of fare choices for our guests. That's why we have introduced our new Saver Fare, recognizing the desire for some travellers to go à la carte, book their flight and choose any additional extras should they so wish.

"While our new Saver Fare will appeal to certain travellers, our Smart Fare which includes all our usual extras is still great value from North America. With more choice than ever for today's traveller, Aer Lingus represents the best value because we offer four-star service now at an even more affordable price."
