Shannon Airport is to launch three new services within the next week.
Ryanair services from Shannon Airport to Fuerteventura (October 31st), Birmingham(November 1st) and Budapest (November 3rd) are to take flight in the next week as the airline boosts its winter service from Shannon.
Addition of these new routes was previously reported by The Clare Echo in August when Ryanair announced it was to restore its second based aircraft at Shannon.
Fuertevenutra flights from Shannon will operate weekly, on Sundays departing at 6:20am. A new twice weekly service to Birmingham will operate on Mondays and Fridays departing Shannon at 7.40am both days. The new Budapest service operating twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays will depart Shannon at 5.25pm and 7.45pm respectively.
Shannon’s new route to Turin takes off in December in what will be a weekly service. These flights are part of a series of new services announced by Ryanair for their Winter season which included services to Gran Canaria, London Luton and Edinburgh which are already operating.
CEO of Shannon Group, Mary Considine said the announcement was “another milestone moment in our efforts to rebuild our air services. We are delighted to be able to offer our airport customers these three new diverse destinations from Shannon. Whether it’s a sun holiday to recharge, a cultural break or a shopping trip, the choice is there”.
She added, “During the pandemic we have taken time to invest in new technology to make our passengers’ journey through the airport even easier. For example, we’ve just begun operating our new €2.5 million state-of-the-art security screening system which Is halving the time our customers spend in the airport security screening area by making the removal of laptops and liquids from cabin bags a thing of the past”.
Eighteen Ryanair services are now available from Shannon Airport. “We know that restoring connectivity and rebuilding our air services is hugely important for our customers, and these three new popular destinations are welcome additions,” Ms Considine commented. The latest development is keeping Shannon “on the right path,” she concluded.
