Aeroflot Russian International Airlines (ARIA) has been given limited fifth-freedom rights to carry passengers from Shannon to New York, adding to existing approval to carry passengers originating in Ireland and the USA on routes between Shannon and Washington DC, Miami, Florida, and Chicago, Illinois. ARIA can carry a maximum of 160 passengers each way weekly - depending on the season. The airline also plans to restore Shannon as a stopover on its Moscow-New York service from September.
