Four Aer Lingus transatlantic flights out of six voyages have been canceled today

Four Aer Lingus transatlantic flights are among the six trips so far canceled at Dublin Airport today.

or Departures, Aer Lingus’ 11:20 am flight to Chicago, EI123, and the airline’s 4:45 pm flight to Boston, EI137, have been cancelled.

The 8.40am British Airways flight to London, BA4463, was also canceled this morning.

For arrivals, the 8:45 Aer Lingus flight from Washington, EI118 and the 12:45 Aer Lingus flight from Seattle, EI 1052 have also been cancelled.

Meanwhile, the 8.05am British Airways flight from London, BA4460, also stopped.

It comes that three flights were canceled at Dublin Airport yesterday, while a further 13 were canceled on Sunday.

Aer Lingus has attributed the recent cancellations to “operational reasons” as it continues to deal with Covid-19 cases among staff and industrial action abroad.

The airline confirmed that today’s flights to Chicago and Boston have been canceled “due to a surge in Covid cases”.

However, Aer Lingus did not say why the flights from Washington and Seattle were cancelled.

“The majority of our flight schedule – over 98 per cent – has been operating, with just over 1 per cent of Aer Lingus flights affected by cancellations in recent weeks,” the airline said.

“Aer Lingus would like to apologize to our customers affected by these cancellations and our teams at the airline are working to transition those affected back to the next available services as efficiently as possible. Affected passengers will be contacted directly by Aer Lingus.

“Aer Lingus anticipated the return of demand for travel once Covid restrictions were lifted and built buffers into our plans to cope with a reasonable level of additional disruption. However, a significant increase in Covid cases in recent weeks, coupled with system pressures and ongoing issues at some airports and third-party providers, has created significant additional operational challenges.

“We understand this is difficult for our impacted customers and we apologize for the disruption. We have shared details of customers’ rights and airlines’ obligations under Regulation (EC) 261/2004 which can be found here: aerlingus.com/support/legal/regulation.”

Passengers from various airlines have also reported lost luggage at Dublin Airport.

A Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) spokesman said it was aware of the issues some arriving passengers are facing with baggage reclaim, but that is being addressed by the airlines.

“We sympathize with those affected and regret that these issues are affecting their passenger experience.

“We are working very closely with both airlines and their ground handling companies on these issues, which stem from the significant recruitment challenges faced by all companies currently involved in the airline industry.”

However, reports of long queues at airport security checkpoints and outside terminal buildings have decreased significantly in recent weeks.

At 9:15 a.m. this morning, the wait time at security was five minutes in Terminal One and 15 minutes in Terminal Two, according to the DAA website.
