Flying this festive season? Four handy tips to make it easier for you

We know that lots of our customers are looking forward to making a trip this festive season. Check out these four ways you can make your upcoming trip easier with Aer Lingus. We’re really looking forward to seeing you on board soon. 

1. Know exactly what’s needed before you go

Use our free Know Before You Go travel tool to see exactly which forms and paperwork you need for your destination. It gives you specific information for every country with links to forms and useful information.

Travel requirements are subject to change at any time. Make sure you check the latest requirements before you travel.

Don’t forget to check the requirements for both journeys if you’re making a return trip. If you’re on a connecting flight, don’t forget to check the entry requirements for your transfer through Ireland, as well as your destination.

2. Peace of mind with VeriFLY

The VeriFLY app will approve your travel documents, giving you confidence that you meet the latest travel requirements. Simply upload your travel documents within 72 hours of your trip. After a speedy approval you’ll get a green check and you’ll be able to check in online.

We highly recommend that you use VeriFLY for any upcoming trips. Find out more about VeriFLY and download the app.
