American Airlines Re-launches Dublin-Chicago Flight And Moves To Terminal 2

March 14, 2011

Passengers to benefit from pre-clearing U.S. Immigration and Customs

As part of its new summer schedule, American Airlines is delighted to be re-launching its daily non-stop flight between Dublin and Chicago O'Hare flight beginning April 6th.

On its return, the route will be operated by American's two-class Boeing 767-300 aircraft offering a total of 225 seats, including 30 in Business Class, with the flight also expected to operate on an annual basis for next year.

At the same time, American is also moving to Dublin Airport's new Terminal 2. This will benefit customers by enabling them to pre-clear U.S. Immigration and Customs prior to boarding their flight. On arrival into Chicago, customers will then be considered domestic rather than international passengers, allowing smoother connections and removing the need to claim and re-check baggage before continuing to their final destination.

As part of the terminal move, customers will also enjoy the benefits of a more spacious check-in environment, a dedicated American Airlines ticket counter and five check-in desks. Additionally - and for the first time in Dublin - customers will have access to two American Airlines self service machines which enable a range of transactions including re-printing boarding passes, seat selection and, of course, check-in. With online check-in already available via too, the increased number of check-in options made possible as part of the terminal move is another element expected to be popular with customers.

Graham Bell, Director of Sales UK and Ireland, American Airlines, commented: "We are delighted to be re-launching our flight between Dublin and Chicago and to be providing more travel options for those travelling from Ireland to the United States. We look forward to welcoming back our customers and hope that they will enjoy the U.S. Customs & Immigration pre-clearance benefits made possible by our terminal move."
