Minister of State and Clare Fianna Fail T.D. Tony Killeen says he has received notification from the Shannon Airport Authority that Ryanair has reversed an earlier decision to withdraw its services from Shannon to Liverpool and Edinburgh.
Welcoming the announcement, Minister of State Killeen stated: “Ryanair’s services from Shannon Airport to Edinburgh and Liverpool will continue to operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays during the summer. These services have always been very popular and I am delighted that Ryanair has decided to continue operating them.”
Minister of State Killeen also welcomed Ryanair’s confirmation that it will continue to operate services to London Gatwick, London Stansted, Malaga, Nantes, Palma, Paris Beauvais, Tenerife and Wroclaw up to the end of the end of summer 2010 at least.
“The future growth of Shannon Airport is dependant on the provision of services to destinations throughout the UK and Europe. Ryanair’s decision to continue operating flights to Liverpool and Edinburgh as well as continue providing services to other European destinations will complement the existing UK, Domestic and Transatlantic services currently being provided by Aer Lingus and Continental Airlines. Meanwhile, Delta Airlines also will resume their New York JFK to Shannon service in May”, he added.
