United States Pre-clearance at Dublin
The daily Inverness to Dublin flight gives you the chance to visit the vibrant city for a long weekend or explore the gorgeous surrounding countryside. But as many Highlanders have already found out and taken advantage of, the U.S. pre-clearance at Dublin airport means that all U.S. bound passengers can complete all your immigration and custom checks before you’ve even left the ground with your onward flight.
The United States pre-clearance facility at Dublin airport allows all U.S. bound passengers to complete their immigration, customs and agricultural inspections in Dublin before departure. Essentially, allowing you to arrive before you’ve taken off!
As the only airport in the EU with this service, it ensures that passengers are welcomed as domestic arrivals in the U.S., having already cleared immigration and customs in Dublin.
This service has a number of key benefits:
It greatly reduces the arrival processing time in the U.S., since passengers already cleared immigration and customs.
More accessible connections since your baggage can now be checked through to your final destination. Again, this cuts the minimum connection time by effectively offering a domestic to domestic connection.
You fly into less congested terminals, on arrival at U.S. gateway airports.
You can do this flying on one ticket with Aer Lingus and the Inverness-Dublin flight has good onward connections to Orlando, New York, Chicago, Boston and Toronto. Fly late morning from Inverness and arrive in time for dinner at your final destination. Coming back you will arrive in the afternoon, avoiding the A96 or A9 drive to Inverness…….what a treat!
