Aer Lingus is running their autumn flight sale at the moment. They’re offering flights to European destinations from as low as €29.99 each way.
According to new research from Aer Lingus 2 out of 3 Irish adults are planning to escape overseas in the next 6 months!
Irish adults are ready and raring to explore far beyond their lockdown radius. In fact, 2 in 3 respondents (66%) haven’t ventured outside Ireland for a holiday since the pandemic began.
Ireland’s 25–34-year-olds are particularly eager to get flying, with 81% of that age group intending to travel abroad in the next 6 months.
With restrictions easing across Europe in recent months and consumer confidence in air travel returning, almost 2 in 5 (39%) adults in Ireland said they are most looking forward to exploring some new surroundings when they travel again, with 3 in 10 (30%) itching to try new cultures and cuisines. A quarter (24%) of those planning to travel soon are doing so just for a new experience.
According to the Aer Lingus research, of those 65% intending to fly abroad in the next 6 months, 17% will visit a Christmas Market and 31% will enjoy a city break. However, the majority of respondents (47%) will be reuniting with family and friends and 11% say they will travel to celebrate a missed milestone they couldn’t meaningfully mark during the pandemic.
The research was conducted by 3Gem on behalf of Aer Lingus in September 2021 amongst a nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults in Ireland aged 18+, 50% male and 50% female.
You can booking now for flights from October 1st 2021 to February 17th 2022 during the Aer Lingus autumn / winter sale.
