Aer Lingus Airlines is the national carrier of Ireland and is headquartered at the Dublin Airport. It was founded in 1936 by the Irish Government primarily to provide air services between Ireland and the UK. Its long existence makes it a company rich in history, and it uses the well-known shamrock symbol on the tailfins of its aircraft.
The carrier has come a long way since its humble beginnings and now provides connectivity between many world destinations.
