Ryanair to operate 16 destinations from Shannon in July and a new route to Turin this winter.

 

Ryanair will operate to 16 destinations from Shannon in July. The airline is currently operating eight services from Shannon to Barcelona Reus, Stansted, Gatwick, Kaunas, Krakow, Wroclaw, Warsaw and Manchester. These services will be increased to 16 routes with the addition of Alicante, Corfu, Faro, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Malaga, Palma and Tenerife in July. Airport staff are delighted to welcome back the scheduled flights and we look forward to the easing of restrictions and the beginning of the recovery of aviation. In all, a total of 72 weekly flights will operate through Shannon from July up to the end of October.

 

In a further boost to services, Ryanair this week announced a new weekly flight to Turin commencing on the 18th December for the winter-ski market. As the vaccine roll-out programme increases and we look forward to the lifting of the non-essential travel ban on 19th July, people can again begin to plan for much-deserved holiday breaks.  Commenting on the service enhancements at Shannon, Declan Power (Head of Aviation Development) said “We expect to see an increase of passengers through the airport over the coming months and with the closure of Cork Airport for three months, from September to November, we will be open to facilitate and serve any holidaymakers from the Cork region who wish to travel during this time”.

 

Shannon Airport employees have been busy readying the airport, implementing a series of rigorous public health measures to protect the health and safety of passengers and employees at the airport. In as much as is possible, these measures, involve a contactless journey through the airport with minimal touchpoints and reflect the national COVID-19 Health Service Executive (HSE) guidelines and government code of practice guidelines for Air Passengers taking on board the best practice guidelines developed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).  Measures taken by Shannon Group to protect the safety of its passengers and employees at Shannon Airport during the COVID-19 pandemic were recognised internationally last year when the airport received a global endorsement from the Airports Council International (ACI) World and ACI EUROPE.
