NEWS: Select Flights to Orlando Will Resume Soon from Ireland and the U.K.

The global pandemic has restricted travel into the U.S. since early 2020.

Travel has been restricted

The United States has restricted international travel into the country for non-U.S. citizens, and made citizens traveling back into the country meet specific testing requirements. It was recently announced that international travel restrictions would be lifted for vaccinated visitors. And now, there are more and more flight routes scheduled to resume soon.

Aer Lingus flights are scheduled to resume soon from Ireland and the U.K. to Orlando! Flights out of Dublin will resume on November 27th and flights out of Manchester (the airlines new service) will start on December 11th.


Aer Lingus is an international airline based out of Dublin, Ireland. The airline does currently offer flights to the U.S. from Dublin and Manchester, but not direct flights to Orlando.

With more and more international flights resuming, it’s important to note the current travel guidelines. Starting on November 8th, international visitors who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to travel to the U.S. Proof of vaccination (and any other testing requirements) will need to be shown before boarding the plane and all vaccines approved by the World Health Organization will be accepted, even if they haven’t been approved in the U.S.

Orlando International Airport

There are some exceptions to this rule. People traveling from countries with a vaccination rate under 10% will have to “provide a compelling reason for why they are traveling to the U.S.” Also, people under the age of 18 with “certain medical conditions,” clinical trial participants, and those “traveling on short notice” will be included in the exemption.
