First row window or aisle seat guaranteed with unoccupied middle seat for added comfort
Aer Lingus has launched AerSpace, its new premium travel experience for short-haul economy guests, which takes off on 1 September 2019.
AerSpace guests flying from select UK destinations to Ireland will be guaranteed an aisle or window seat on the first row of the aircraft, with the middle seat left unoccupied, creating a more spacious and relaxing traveller experience.
For added convenience, AerSpace guests will also enjoy reserved cabin space directly overhead, complimentary lounge access, Fast Track security, priority boarding and complimentary on-board refreshments from the Aer Lingus’ onboard menu.
Designed with guests’ needs in mind, AerSpace is a unique offering in Europe with just four seats per aircraft. It promises a seamless travel experience catering for those who require more space and comfort, whether travelling for business or leisure.
As one of the busiest routes in the world for business travel, bookings with Aer Lingus indicated one in four (25 per cent) of all guests who travel with the airline between Dublin and London are flying for business reasons.
Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus Director of Network Revenue and Loyalty, said: “We are thrilled to introduce a new fare option which gives greater comfort and convenience to our guests. At Aer Lingus we are committed to innovating our product offering to meet travellers’ ever-changing needs. AerSpace guests will have reserved seating in row 1 on our most popular routes, leaving the middle seat free and allowing more space to work or simply relax as they fly.
“Not only will those choosing AerSpace enjoy a suite of complimentary services including lounge access and priority boarding, AerClub members will also collect Avios on their AerSpace purchase. We are proud to launch AerSpace in response to feedback from our guests seeking a more premium and spacious travel experience when flying short haul with Aer Lingus.”
Fares start from just £136.99 each way from London Gatwick; from £149.99 each way from London Heathrow and from £124.99 each way from Manchester and Birmingham, when booked as a return trip.
AerSpace enhances Aer Lingus’ fare offering which also includes Saver, the lowest fare option, Plus, and Advantage, together offering choice to cater for travellers’ individual needs. AerSpace is available to book now for travel from 1 September 2019. Visit aerlingus.com for further information.
