Ryanair launched eight new routes from its Shannon base to Birmingham, Fuerteventura, Kaunas (Lithuania), Leeds, London Luton, Riga, Tenerife and its first domestic service from Shannon to Dublin.
Ryanair’s 31 Shannon routes will deliver two million passengers to the mid-west in the coming year, while supporting 2,000 jobs in the region.
Speaking today, Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Peter Sherrard said:
“Ryanair is committed to delivering the lowest fares guaranteed to passengers in the mid-west, and these eight new routes provide an additional link to London from Shannon, while passengers can now also avoid the nightmare traffic on the M50 and N7, with flights to Dublin for less than half the price of a tank of petrol.
“To celebrate these 8 new routes, Ryanair is giving away 100,000 seats for just €10, and passengers should log onto www.ryanair.com immediately, as this offer must end at midnight on Monday.”
