Shannon Airport Welcomes Return of US Airways

Shannon Airport’s options for US-bound destinations has got a major boost with US Airways beginning its daily service to its Philadelphia hub. The service, which leaves Shannon daily at 11.35, brings to five the number of US destinations flown to from Shannon this year – the first time since 2009 that Shannon will have had this level of US services. US Airways Phil Shn 38

Philadelphia is a significant addition to Shannon’s summer services given that the airport tis one of three US Airways hubs in the USA and offers onward connections to destinations across the USA, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.

Rose Hynes, Chairman of Shannon Airport, said: “We are delighted today to see US Airways back on the runway at Shannon with the Philadelphia service. We have no doubt that it will be a very popular route at Shannon. Philadelphia’s appeal is heightened by the fact that it is a hub airport for US Airways, with onward connections to more than 100 cities across the United States.”

As an added convenience, customers can clear US immigration and customs before departing Shannon, allowing for a quick and efficient arrival at Philadelphia International Airport. Customers who receive pre-clearance at Shannon Airport arrive as domestic passengers, are able to check their baggage through to their final destination and ultimately reduce the amount of time needed to connect to their next flight.
