From 29 October 2017, passengers will be able to connect to Aer Lingus transatlantic services and complete US pre-clearance in Dublin Airport, ahead of their onward journey to the US and Canada.
Aer Lingus flies to a total of 12 North American destinations, including New York, Boston, Washington, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Newark, Toronto and Hartford, Connecticut.
Completing pre-clearance at Dublin Airport - operated and staffed by US Customs and Border staff - means that on arrival in the US, passengers are treated similarly to domestic passengers and so avoid the lengthy delays so often associated with US security.
One-way fares from London Southend to North America start from £199 including taxes and charges. Book now at www.aerlingus.com.
