Aer Lingus chooses Minneapolis, Montreal over Pittsburgh for Dublin flights

Pittsburgh didn’t have the luck of the Irish — at least not yet.

Aer Lingus passed on Pittsburgh for its newest nonstop flights to Dublin from North America.

The airline chose to launch flights to Dublin from Minneapolis and Montreal, the Dublin-based carrier announced Wednesday.

The Irish Times reported last month that the airline was considering launching service to Pittsburgh as one of its two new North American destinations.

Pittsburgh International Airport has never had a nonstop flight to Dublin, airport spokesman Bob Kerlik has said.

Since 2016, the airport has launched nonstop flights to Frankfurt, Germany, and Reykjavik, Iceland. British Airways is launching flights to London on April 2 . Delta Air Lines ended its longstanding nonstop flight to Paris this month.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
