Shannon Airport, a Shannon Group company, has today welcomed the announcement by Ryanair that it is to deliver a twice weekly Ibiza service for next year’s summer season as another major boost in a very positive year for the airport.

Ryanair will operate the new route, a first for Shannon, from early April to end of October, strengthening sun holiday capacity to Shannon by another 22,000 seats. Today‘s announcement comes with the airport enjoying its best summer season in a decade, recording growth of over 5% in the first half of the year.

Welcoming the announcement Andrew Murphy, Managing Director, Shannon Airport said: “2018 has been our best year in over a decade at Shannon but from planning perspective we have very much moved onto 2019 and this is a really good boost for the airport. It comes off the back of Ryanair going year-round from next month on its Alicante service and the introduction of its Barcelona-Reus service this summer.

“Ibiza is a hugely popular destination for holiday makers and will mean that next year we will have eight services to Spanish sun holiday destinations”

Said Shannon Group CEO Matthew Thomas: “Shannon Group is one of the most important drivers of economic growth in the country and Shannon Airport is integral to that. We want to make it easy for holiday makers in our region to travel to sun destinations from their airport, and not have to make long journeys to get their flights abroad for summer and winter breaks.

“We’ve spent the last few years working very hard on building capacity back up and Ibiza is another service that was very much on our wish list and we are delighted now it on our summer schedule for 2019. Ryanair are a major airline partner at Shannon and we look forward to working closely with them to make the new service a success.”
