American Airlines resumes Direct Flights from Dublin to Charlotte

#Traveltradetogether

Don Shearer (Travelbiz) was in Dublin airport this morning as a guest of Tara Magee (Commercial Manager, Ireland, Key Account Sales (Corporate & TMC) – UK&I Region) along with key Trade and media partners to get on board the American Airlines B777 200 service direct from Dublin to Charlotte. Tara was supported by the Dublin Airport Team of Edel Redmond. Michelle O’Reilly and Ciara O’Brien.

The group got to check through the all-new dedicated USA security filter in Terminal 2 which brings stateside passenger through a far speedier security process where carry-on bags and hand luggage is scanned though the all new C3 scanners negating the requirement for passengers to remove liquids and electronic devices. Average queue times through security and then onto preclearance with access to airside shops and bars is less than 30 minutes!

Don recently had the great pleasure of flying from Dublin to Charlotte with American Airlines. Don got to experience the amazing lie-flat Flagship Business suites on American’s B777 200 service. The cabin crew, namely Sissy and Dave, in the Business Suite cabin, were just so helpful and could not do enough to ensure the experience was one to remember. Don will be back with American Airlines in a couple of weeks flying American’s premium economy service. The cabin is worth every euro as it provides you with better seat selection during booking, wider seats and more legroom, prioritised check-in and boarding, plus premium meals, free bar with other services and amenities. Premium economy offers more perks than economy class and is typically much cheaper than business or first class.

Whether you love mountains, city or coast, North Carolina has a wealth of places to explore and new experiences to try from moonshine and NASCAR to spotting wild horses on the Outer Banks. These flights to Charlotte will run daily as summer is expected to be a busy season for travel and this move will facilitate easy access for travellers to visit North Carolina’s largest city.
