Is food and drink free on Aer Lingus?

Whether you get Aer Lingus meals included with your ticket depends on where you’re flying to. For long-haul flights, all customers receive complimentary inflight meals, non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks. However, passengers flying within Europe generally pay for their inflight meals.

As an example, if you’re flying from New York to Paris with a stopover in Dublin, you’ll receive free meals on the New York to Dublin part of your journey. However, you’ll need to buy items from the inflight menu for your connecting flight to Paris.


On short-haul European routes, you can purchase Aer Lingus inflight meals from the Bia menu. This menu offers a variety of items such as chicken and stuffing sandwiches, raspberry muffins, fresh fruit salads, cheese boards, and various sandwich combinations. Here’s the latest inflight menu.
