Press Release 03 Jul 2013

Barry O’Leary, Chief Executive at IDA Ireland said “When companies make decisions to locate operations in foreign countries, direct air access from their headquarters is a very important factor.”

“Google, Facebook and many other IDA Ireland clients have their international headquarters located in the San Francisco area.”

“The direct flight by Aer Lingus from Dublin to San Francisco will add to Ireland’s attractiveness as a place to locate business.”

“Approximately 40% of the foreign direct investment to Ireland from the US comes from the Silicon Valley area.”

“This route will strengthen the links between Silicon Valley and Ireland’s own cluster of tech companies in Dublin.”
