The countdown to Aer Lingus’s inaugural flight from Dublin to LAX kicked off in true Hollywood style this week.

The airline treated Dubliners to a ‘LAXperience’, flying Venice Beach street crew 'The Calypso Tumblers' to the capital for an exclusive performance on South King Street.

The group of dancers, acrobats, gymnasts and contortionists entertained the crowds with an upbeat street performance which displayed their incredible breakdancing, body bending and super-human strength.

The crew have previously performed on Good Morning America and The Today Show in the US and also reached the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent Season 2.

Holidaymakers seeking sunshine, shopping and celeb spotting will now be able to fly directly to LAX airport from May 4 2016, with the airline operation five flights per week.

The launch comes as part of Aer Lingus’ transatlantic expansion which also includes new routes to Newark, New Jersey and Hartford Connecticut from September 2016.
