Ryanair have announced plans to add eight routes from Shannon Airport in line with the lifting of restrictions on non-essential international travel on July 19th.
The airline said there will be a "significant increase in destination, services and frequencies" from the western airport, from which Ryanair is currently operating eight routes, including London Stansted and Gatwick, Barcelona-Reus, and Krakow.
The additional routes include reinstated flights to Faro, Lanzarote, Malaga, Palma and Tenerife, and a new route to Corfu, while one further route will be announced shortly, the airline said.
A total of 72 flights will operate through Shannon up to the end of October, while a new Turin service will also commence in December, aimed at the winter ski market.
Chief executive of the Shannon Group, Mary Considine welcomed the news, stating the reopening of international travel on Monday is a "very significant step forward not only for Shannon Airport, but for the thousands of jobs and businesses along the Wild Atlantic Way and mid-west, that depend on these services to support their operations".
Also on Tuesday, Ryanair announced a winter service between Knock and Milan Bergano which will begin in November.
Launching the two weekly flights, the airline announced seats will be available for €19.99 before midnight on July 15th for travel up to the end of March 2022.
