Rose Hynes, Shannon Airport Authority Chairman, said: “This Ryanair announcement is really good news for thousands of holiday makers from this region as Alicante is one of the most popular sun destinations operated from this airport. Thankfully, these people now have the pleasure and convenience again of flying from Shannon and we expect it will be a hugely successful route.

“We have had a really good start to life as an independent entity, with a range of new services in place for this year. Alicante was at the top of our list in terms of European sun destinations we wanted to secure and we are delighted now that Ryanair has come on board with the service. There is significant demand for additional services at Shannon and our job is to work as hard and as competitively as we can to ensure we deliver those.

“We will work closely with Ryanair with a view to ensuring the success of its existing routes and growing its services out of Shannon.”

Ryanair is also increasing the frequency of its flights to Malaga and Palma during the peak summer months, as well as providing flights to Lanzarote, Tenerife, Nantes, Wroclaw, London Stansted, London Gatwick and Liverpool.

Shannon Airport Director Mary Considine said that Ryanair’s announcement confirms the significant opportunity there is to grow European services at the airport. “Today’s announcement is another boost for Shannon Airport. We have been working particularly hard to secure the return of the Alicante route as it is one of the services in most demand according to our market research.”

The Alicante service adds to other new services commencing at Shannon over the coming months, including to Chicago, Philadelphia, Glasgow and Faro.
