Shannon Welcomes Increased Ryanair Winter Schedule

Shannon Airport has welcomed Ryanair’s announcement that it is to strengthen its winter schedule with the addition of further capacity from the end of October. The airline will add a daily Manchester service, replacing a three times weekly Liverpool service, and a weekly Kaunas (Lithuania) flight, as well as extra flights on Stansted, to its winter schedule starting end of October.

This will bring the total number of Ryanair services from Shannon to 11 this winter – six more than the 2013/2014 winter season. The new routes operated by Ryanair from Shannon this winter are Paris, Berlin, Fuerteventura, Warsaw, Krakow, Manchester and Kaunas. These are in addition to its existing services to London Gatwick, Lanzarote, Stansted and Wroclaw.

Neil Pakey, Shannon Airport Chief Executive said: “We welcome this further commitment by Ryanair to our upcoming winter schedule, which includes an excellent mix of inbound and outbound opportunities for passengers. We are currently in the middle of a very busy summer season, which has led to a 15% overall increase in passenger numbers in the first six months of the year. Having extra capacity this winter very much strengthens our hand for the off-peak season.”
