Irish low cost carrier Ryanair is launching four new routes from its Shannon base to Manchester, Wroclaw in Poland, Rome and Murcia in Spain.

But to accommodate the new services, Ryanair will drop its current flights from Shannon to Lubeck near Hamburg and Stockholm Skavsta.

The new routes will start on the 22 February and will each operate thrice-weekly. It includes Ryanair’s first route – Shannon-Wroclaw - between Ireland and Poland and takes to 19 the number of routes served from its Shannon base. 

Company CEO Michael O’Leary says: “Ryanair launched its Shannon base in May and monthly Ryanair traffic at the airport has trebled. 

“Today’s four new routes…mean that over the next year 1.5 million passengers will use Ryanair’s Shannon flights, almost 1 million of whom will be inbound visitors.”
