Aer Lingus Calendar 2022 Shows “Off-Peak” Dates for 26,000-Mile Round-Trip Flights to Europe

My favorite way to fly to Europe on miles is a great deal offered by Aer Lingus that lets you fly to Dublin for 26,000 miles per person round-trip plus fuel surcharges and taxes from certain major US cities.

To take advantage of this deal, you need to fly during Aer Lingus’ “off-peak” dates, which run two-thirds of the year.

Now available is the Aer Lingus Calendar for 2022 that shows the airline’s “peak” and “off-peak” dates, so you, too, can take advantage of this fabulous deal!

To take advantage, you’ll need to fly from one of several major U.S. cities like Chicago or New York City directly to Dublin or Shannon, Ireland.

From there, you can fly to other cities in Europe by using Avios (Aer Lingus & British Airways’ miles currency) to book more flights on Aer Lingus or pay to fly a cheap airline like Ryanair.

Here are Aer Lingus’ OFF-PEAK dates for 2022:

  • Jan. 6-April 7
  • April 25-June 9
  • Sept. 5-Dec. 15

We like to fly in late May as soon as the kids are out of school, returning early-June.

Aer Lingus Chase Ultimate Rewards
Aer Lingus has a great deal to get you to Europe for 26,000 points!

You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points earned from cards like Chase Sapphire Preferred (this is my FAVORITE travel credit card; read my full review of this card) directly to Aer Lingus Avios now to book your flight to make things even EASIER.

Another good option to earn points is the British Airways Visa Signature Card (read my full review of this card).

  1. HI Cami, yes, here is the link to their partner airlines:

    What’s great about Aer Lingus is you can now transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards directly to Aer Lingus to book the flights, so a sign up for 1 Chase Sapphire, Reserve, Ink etc card should be enough to get 2 people there and back. They are also partners with British Airways, so you can use any of those points to transfer to Aer Lingus (via Avios.com) and book your flights. I hope that helps!
