Aer Lingus: A321LR production delays will not affect planned new route launches

    Aer Lingus chief corporate affairs officer Donal Moriarty stated delays in Airbus A321LR aircraft deliveries will not affect the carrier’s expansion plans (Irish Independent, 03-Jun-2018). Mr Moriarty added: “We will work with our leasing partner and with Airbus to minimise any delays to deliveries to Aer Lingus. We do not expect our first deliveries to be delayed to the third quarter of 2019. Similarly, we expect there to be no impact on the timing of any announcements of new routes”.
