Aer Lingus has brought back their offer that provides up to an
additional $100 off of their flights out of the U.S. and Canada to
Ireland and Europe. The discount is available on economy or business
class fares booked by September 15 for travel until October 31. The
wording of the offer makes it seem that the discount can vary but in a
couple of searches I made the promo code gave $100 off round trip
flights in any fare class.
Using the promo code IRELAND2021 I was able to find flights in the cheapest economy class fare between Toronto and Dublin for under $500:
For $120 more you can book the next higher fare “Economy Smart” and that includes advanced seat selection, one checked bag and the eligibility for a refund voucher.
FYI Aer Lingus charges C$54.99 each way for a checked bag (when you book it online) so if you are checking baggage you are almost better off buying the higher fare for about $10 more so you can also get your seats selected and have the refund voucher option. Note that seat selection fees start at $29.99 each way!
Remember you also have the option to redeem British Airways Executive Club Avios on this route starting as low as 13,000 Avios each way. Learn about that option here.
