Positive 2018 continues for Shannon Airport as Ryanair adds Liverpool, Bristol and strengthens Manchester

24th February 2018 - 11:05am

A strong start to 2018 is set to get better for Shannon Airport following the announcement that Ryanair is to add two new routes and increase frequency on an existing UK service.


The airline today put on sale its new three times weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) Liverpool service from May 19th and a twice weekly (Mondays and Thursdays) Bristol service from May 17th. Ryanair has also added Tuesdays and Wednesdays to its popular Manchester service from Shannon, which will now run six days weekly.


The additional services and Manchester extension will add 60,000 extra seats for Shannon this summer. The two new services bring to 17 the number of destinations that will be served by Ryanair from Shannon this year.


Welcoming the announcement, Matthew Thomas (Shannon Group CEO) said that 2018 is going to be a year of growth for Shannon. “We’re gearing up very well for 2018. We’ve already had the announcement of additional transatlantic services this year, and we now have this very positive move by Ryanair for our UK schedule to add to the new Reus-Barcelona service Ryanair is starting in March.”
