SHANNON Airport’s first ever scheduled service to Malta is to take flight in March.

On Tuesday afternoon, Shannon Group confirmed that Ryanair were to add a new Malta service from Shannon Airport. It will operate twice weekly, each Thursday (departing Shannon at 5.25pm) and Sunday (departing Shannon at 10.40am), commencing from 27th March and running to 27th October 2022.

Malta is expected to be a popular destination with holidaymakers and brings to 20 the number of Ryanair services available from Shannon Airport next summer.

Speaking previously to The Clare Echo, Ryanair CEO Eddie Wilson outlined that the long-term cost deal agreed between the airline and Shannon Airport running for the next eight to nine years would offer “a template to grow” services from the International Airport.

CEO of Shannon Group, Mary Considine predicted the service will become a busy one. “We know that restoring connectivity is important to our airport customers and that is why we have been working hard with our airline partners to create exciting holiday opportunities”.

She added, “We are delighted to be able to offer our airport customers another great destination. This brings to 20 the number of destinations Ryanair will serve from Shannon next summer including the three new Ryanair services which began operation last month to Fuerteventura, Birmingham and Budapest.

“With its warm climate, breath-taking landscapes and UNESCO World Heritage sites, Malta will undoubtedly be a popular destination this summer for sun seekers and those who want to experience its culture,” Mary concluded.

The new Malta service is part of Ryanair’s summer schedule which will deliver over 60 weekly flights from Shannon Airport to 20 destinations in 2022.
