DALLAS – Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus (EI) has announced that it will place its first Airbus A320neo (EI-NSA) ‘St Thomas/Tomás’ into service on Wednesday, September 28. EI will use the state-of-the-art jet on its flagship Dublin (DUB) to London Heathrow (LHR) service.
The aircraft is configured in a 186 all-economy layout. To mark its entry into service, EI will offset the carbon emissions from all passengers on the flight.
EI received the first of two A320neos (EI-NSB) ‘St. Aidan/Aodhan’ back in August. The type has since been undergoing pre-induction maintenance in Shannon (SNN).
