On Thursday (October 6, 2022), Ryanair announced an expanded schedule to and from Shannon for summer 2023. The expansion will be made possible by the addition of a third based aircraft which will serve a total of 24 routes, including two new routes to Béziers and Newcastle. Ryanair has operated from Shannon for the last 35 years, carrying over 18 million passengers to date. The carrier has also invested heavily in the region, most recently by opening a state-of-the-art three-bay maintenance facility, representing a €10 million investment which created 200 high-skill local jobs. Ryanair’s summer 2023 Shannon schedule will deliver over 180 weekly flights, giving Shannon’s holidaymakers an abundance of sunshine and city getaways, while driving continuous tourism to the west of Ireland.

In Thursday’s announcment, Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said, “As Ireland’s no. 1 airline, Ryanair is delighted to celebrate 35 years of successful operations at Shannon Airport with the announcement of a 3rd based aircraft and bigger schedule for Summer’23 that offers over 180 weekly flights across 24 routes, including 2 new routes to Béziers and Newcastle. Efficient operations and competitive airport charges provide the foundation from which Ryanair can deliver long-term traffic growth and increased connectivity. We have worked directly with our partners in Shannon Airport to agree terms which will deliver growth and investment at the Airport, including a new €10 million maintenance facility, and improved services for those that live, work, or wish to visit the mid-west region of Ireland.

“To allow our customers and visitors to/from Shannon to plan ahead and book their Summer’23 getaway early at the lowest fares, we are launching a seat sale with fares available from just €24.99 for travel from April’23 until October’23, which must be booked by 8th October. To avail of these fantastic low fares, which will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto to avoid missing out.”

Also commenting on Ryanair’s expansion, Shannon Airport Group’s CEO, Mary Considine, said,

“We are delighted with today’s announcement. The addition of two new routes and a third based aircraft here at Shannon demonstrates Ryanair’s continued commitment and is another vote of confidence in our airport. We know our customers will be excited by these two new destinations.

“Days like today, when an airline announces new services, are always very encouraging not only for the general public, but for those at the coalface of the tourism industry here and right along the Wild Atlantic Way, who rely on our air services to bring international visitors to their doors. I would like to thank our aviation development team for the work they have done with Ryanair.

“Aviation plays a critical role in our economy and serves as a driving force for tourism and business. The results from today’s announcement will provide further connectivity for Shannon and the region and highlights the considerable strides Shannon has made since the pandemic.”
