We are very proud that together we are providing our loyal passengers with key services to New York/Newark and Chicago – which launched last month and operates daily for the summer season. These services offer a gateway, directly into the Wild Atlantic Way for our transatlantic visitors. We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration and to celebrating many more years with United and our passengers”.

Commenting on the anniversary Martina Coogan, Head of Corporate Sales U.K. and Ireland, United Airlines. “For a quarter of a century now, United has connected Shannon with the United States, offering our customers nonstop connections to the New York metropolis and the U.S. East Coast, as well as an unrivalled network of onward connections from our New York/Newark hub to over 60 destinations across the Americas”.
