The IDA has welcomed news that Aer Lingus is launching a direct Dublin to San Francisco service five times a week next year.

The move represents a 24 per cent expansion of the airline's transatlantic capacity, and was first reported by *The Sunday Business Post* last March.

“When companies make decisions to locate operations in foreign countries, direct air access from their headquarters is a very important factor," said IDA chief executive Barry O'Leary.
