Services to Liverpool and Bristol have been restored to the schedule at Shannon Airport.

The two services are in addition to an extension of Ryanair’s Manchester frequencies, going six times weekly and will see an additional 60,000 extra seats at Shannon this summer. They will also bring to 17 the number of Ryanair services operating from Shannon this year, including a popular new Barcelona-Reus service launched last month. It has been three years since flights to Bristol have been available from Shannon while followers of Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool footballers will be pleased to see routes to John Lennon Airport are accessible once more.

With a 5% increase in passengers recorded in the first quarter, 2018 is shaping up to be a positive year for Shannon which will have 150 weekly departures during the summer season. In addition to Ryanair’s growth, Shannon this year will also have its busiest transatlantic schedule for 17 years, with eight services operated to seven destinations. Early next month it will commence its Toronto service with Air Canada.

Shannon Airport Managing Director Andrew Murphy stated “Today is another exciting day in a positive year so far for us and the wider region”. He sees the new routes as “a tourism opportunity for this region”. Murphy added, “The UK is a huge market for us and it’s a case now of the promotional agencies getting in there and telling the story of the unique package we have here on the west coast to people who haven’t heard it before.”

Declan Power, Head of Aviation Development at Shannon Airport highlighted the public demand for the services to return. “These are two services that many members of the public were keen to see back on the schedule and we are delighted that Ryanair has answered the call. Ryanair is a very significant player not just for Shannon Airport but this region, as reflected in the number of services they will operate from Shannon this year. Our ask now is, having got these services back, that the public takes advantage and makes the most of them.”
