Irish low cost carrier Ryanair is launching four new routes from its Shannon base
in Poland, Rome
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.”
