There are few things in this world as exciting as going to Las Vegas. Seriously, name something more fun than drinking, partying and gambling in the ultimate adults playground. You can't. Well lads, until now, we haven't had a direct flight to Sin City to enjoy all of this but one airline has come to the rescue: Aer Lingus. That's right, Aer Lingus Las Vegas flights will soon be a thing!
The Irish airline aka our saviours in green are planning the launch next winter, reported the Irish Independent. And if all goes well, Dublin to Las Vegas will be a permanent route. Can I get a hell yeah?
"We are working to build a business case to operate a seasonal service to Las Vegas," Aer Lingus CEO Stephen Kavanagh told the Irish Independent.
"We need to find a balance to the peak summer months, where the US consumer is the main source of our traffic and where Ireland is the destination."
"We can see from our own traffic data that for the Irish consumer Las Vegas is very attractive".
Very attractive indeed.
A whopping 43 million people visited Las Vegas last year, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). That's more than 8x the population of Ireland which obviously means we all need to go there to make that a reality.
Oh and the Las Vegas service ain't the only place Aer Lingus is going in 'Murica, there's a new route to Miami starting in September.
