AA Increases Non-Stop Service to Ireland

Beginning May 2007, American Airlines will offer nonstop service from Chicago to Shannon, Ireland, the carrier announced on Monday. "Ireland is an extremely popular destination and our 'Gateway to the World' hub at O'Hare offers easy and convenient travel for both local and connecting passengers who want to leave their homes one day and be on the Emerald Isle by the next morning," Thomas Aichele, American's managing director of passenger sales in Chicago, said in a statement. American this past May began offering daily flights from Chicago to Dublin. For flight times visit [www.aa.com].
