Planning a USA holiday brings so much excitement from the initial decision on where to go, to the activities that you want to do. Through all of this excitement you often forget about the long journey there and time wasted hanging around in airports waiting for your second or even third connecting flight to take you to your final destination.

Avoid the stress and wasted time that comes with indirect flights by flying direct to the US with Aer Lingus. As the most punctual major airline departing from Dublin and with direct flights available to over 11 destinations in North America, it is the smart choice to fly Aer Lingus.

Those flying to North America can now purchase the new Aer Lingus Saver fare enabling customers to travel light. One cabin bag, in-flight entertainment and an on-board meal will all be included in the fare with the option to pay for additional extras.

Check out some of our favourite destinations that you can fly to directly with Aer Lingus this year.



San Francisco is another great Winter Sun destination. This city is full of character and is home to the famous Golden Gate Bridge which is a must-see. Other must-sees on a San Francisco holiday include Alcatraz, Lombard Street, the cable cars and Pier 39 at Fisherman’s Wharf. The journey to San Francisco is normally made longer with stopovers on the way there but with Aer Lingus you can fly directly to San Francisco hassle free.

Looks like SUE came out on top in our poll! SUE, the largest, best-preserved, and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found measures 40.5 feet long from snout to tail and 13 feet tall at the hip. Here's a quick look at what SUE was like during her time on Earth. Eyesight: On SUE's skull, her eye sockets faced forward, as do those of most other predators and scavengers. This means SUE had good depth perception and could tell how far away her next meal was. Hearing: Her inner ear structure tells us that T. rex like SUE had terrific hearing and a heightened sense of equilibrium and balance. SUE could clearly hear potential prey approaching. Sense of smell: Based on the length of SUE's snout and the size of the odor-detecting region in her brain, scientists think that SUE had a keen sense of smell. She would've had no problem sniffing out carrion or potential prey, but likely hunted by sight more than scent. Bite Force: SUE's serrated teeth were perfect for biting through flesh and bone. Their backwardly curved shape also prevented struggling meals from escaping. Estimates of a T. rex's bite force place it higher than the largest living animal known today. Speed & Agility: As a rule in nature, extremely large animals like elephants are not as fast as mid-sized animals like horses or antelope. That's why scientists think that SUE's top speed was probably only a fast walk of 15 mph or less—still faster than most of her prey. For more on SUE, visit the link in our bio!

Chicago is the third largest city in the US and as one of the true jazz capitals of the USA it is an ideal place to visit on a city break. Fly there directly from Dublin with Aer Lingus for the city break of a lifetime. Catch a baseball game at Wrigley Field, take a selfie with the famous Chicago Bean, test your fear of heights in Willis Tower or see the world’s largest, most complete T Rex in The Field Museum. Make sure you try out a famous Chicago deep dish pizza and shop along the Magnificent Mile where you will find over 460 retailers. Book your Chicago City Break Holiday with Budget Travel USA.

Aer Lingus launched their direct flights from Dublin to Miami in September 2017 and we couldn't be happier! Miami is the ideal spot to get some winter sun and, with Aer Lingus flying there three times weekly from Dublin, it's easier than ever to get to. There’s so much to see and do on a Miami holiday! Stop by South Beach to soak up some sun or do some people watching, take a tour of the Everglades, or visit Little Havana to see Miami’s Cuban neighbourhood. You can even embark on a Caribbean cruise after your direct flight to Miami. Make your way to Miami for some Winter Sun with Budget Travel USA.
