This is another step in slowly rebuilding our air services and brings to nine the number of Ryanair services announced for Shannon to-date. As the vaccine roll-out programme increases and we look forward to the lifting of the non-essential travel ban on July 19th with the introduction of the EU Digital Covid Certificate, people can again begin to plan for much-deserved holiday breaks”.
