Riviera Travel is now offering UK regional flights to North America via Dublin with Aer Lingus for the first time, including additional departures from Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol, Isle of Man and Leeds Bradford.

The stop at Dublin means customers will receive USA pre-clearance immigration, enabling them to enter North America as a domestic USA flight passenger. This will avoid long queues at customs on arrival into the US, which can often take up to two hours.

In addition, the operator's customers will not need to worry about changing terminals when arriving in Dublin, as flights to North America depart from the same terminal. They will only need to check in their bags in once, when they start their journey in the UK.

Joseph Grimley, the company's head of agency sales, said: “We’re very excited to share the news that Riviera Travel customers now have the opportunity to travel from more regional airports around the UK to North America with less fuss, stress and waiting around.

“The long queues at immigration can sometimes put people off making the trip to the States. Our additional regional departures make our range of North America tours even easier for our agents to sell – who wouldn’t want this extra convenience and time saved to do more fun things upon arrival?"
