Riviera Travel is now offering long-haul flights from regional UK airports to the US for the first time.
The flights with Aer Lingus go via Dublin from Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol, Isle of Man and Leeds Bradford. On some tours, there are also flights from Newcastle, Bristol, Gatwick and Heathrow.
Clients on these flights will receive US pre-clearance immigration while in Dublin, avoiding queues of up to two hours at customs on arrival in the US. There is no terminal change at Dublin and bags will only need to be checked in once from the UK departure airport.
Riviera’s 15-day California & the Golden West tour starts at £2,699, with flights out of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Isle of Man, Manchester, Birmingham and Gatwick via Dublin.
