Aer Lingus Flights
- Before You Fly
- In the Air
Based at Dublin Airport, Aer Lingus is the flag carrier airline of Ireland and reaches 73 destinations.
Check-in times vary depending on your destination. The following is a recommended guide. Business class passengers have a dedicated check-in area. All airports offer a counter check-in service with the following options.
For most flights, web check is available between 2-30 hours prior to departure. For flights to the USA, web check is available between 2-24 hours prior to departure. Once you print your boarding passes, proceed to the bag drop area where you will check any bags. Be sure to allocate enough time for security and any immigration procedures.
Mobile check is available on most smart phones by simply adding your reservation details and following the prompts. An SMS with a link to your boarding pass will then be sent. Once you arrive at the airport make your way to the bag drop area if required or go straight through to security and on to your gate.
Fast-Pass Self Service
A self-service kiosk check-in is available at most airports. Simply enter your details to print your boarding passes before proceeding to the bag drop off area. Then make your way through security.
All passengers on Aer Lingus flights are allowed up to one carry-on bag weighing no more than 10kg. This rule is applicable in all classes of travel. Carry-on bags that exceed this amount must be checked in. A checked bag fee will be applied and payable at the airport. Ensure your bag is within the limits as indicted to prevent any unforseen bag fees.
Checked baggage is available for a fee on all economy flights regardless of destination. Passengers can receive up to a 50% discount on fees when pre-purchase baggage online. Checked bag fees at the airport are considerably higher and are applicable per bag, in each direction of travel.
Frequent Flyer Programme
Aer Lingus has a frequent flyer programme called the Gold Circle Club. The programme allows members to earn and redeem flights on all Aer Lingus and partner airline flights. Membership is divided into three tiers: Gold Circle Club, Prestige Circle Club, and Elite Circle Club. Gold Circle Points are earned on eligible fare classes on Aer Lingus or partner airline flights. Points may then be redeemed for reward flights and upgrades. Other benefits may be included depending on your tier.
