Shannon Airport has been included in a list of routes that Eurowings is considering for next year.

In an unusual twist, the low-cost German airline is allowing the general public to choose the destination! The most-voted destination will feature in Eurowings’ 2018 summer schedule. Shannon is the only airport in the republic of Ireland being considered.

The shortlist features 10 European destinations; Shannon, Biarritz, Brac, Bergen, Belfast, Trieste, Castellón, Mostar, Podgorica and Trapani.

Speaking after hearing that Shannon Airport had been shortlisted, Shannon Airport Managing Director Andrew Murphy urged the people to get behind Shannon’s bid to be the chosen route; “This is a wonderful opportunity for the Irish public to positively impact on our country’s tourism industry. Given Shannon Airport’s excellent proximity to famous Irish tourist attractions like the Cliffs of Moher and Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, a win for the airport would be a major boost for the Shannon region and Ireland as a whole.”

Eurowings is a low-cost subsidiary of Lufthansa, and the fastest growing airline in Europe. Visit to cast your vote. #BackingShannon.
