Ireland expects an increase in the number of tourists from the United States: what is the reason
The Ministry of Tourism of Ireland predicts that next year the country will receive significantly more tourists from the United States than before. Not least, this will be due to the introduction of new airline connections.
The Irish airline Aer Lingus plans to launch a route between Dublin and Denver in May next year, and in April they want to resume flights between Dublin and Minneapolis-St. Paul, Irish Central reports.
However, these are not the only flights that could bring more American tourists to the country. American Airlines is preparing a Dublin-Charlotte route on March 5, and Delta Airlines has announced the opening of a new route between Dublin and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
The Department of Tourism Ireland said: "The addition and expansion of these transatlantic services is really good news and will certainly help to boost tourism from the United States to Ireland in 2024 and beyond."
In total, flights from the United States to Ireland will be able to provide the country with 240,000 potential tourists. Next summer, 17 different routes will be opened between Dublin and American airports, and four more flights from the United States will be regularly received in Shannon.
