For added convenience, AerSpace customers will also enjoy reserved cabin space directly overhead, as well as complimentary lounge access, Fast Track security, priority boarding and onboard refreshments from Aer Lingus’ onboard menu.

Commenting on the launch, Susanne Carberry, Director of Network Revenue and Loyalty, Aer Lingus, said: “We are thrilled to introduce a new fare option which gives greater comfort and convenience to our guests.
