Two New Ryanair Mediterranean summer services have been secured by Shannon Airport. Great news for mid-west of Ireland holiday makers.

The two exciting new destinations to Naples in Italy, and Porto in Portugal, will begin operating from Shannon in Summer ’23.

The twice weekly services will run on Wednesdays and Sundays for both destinations.

This brings the total number of routes operated by Ryanair at Shannon Airport next summer to 26, and over 180 weekly flights – a 35% capacity growth on its Summer ‘22 offering.

Mary Considine, CEO of The Shannon Airport Group described the news as “another win for Shannon Airport” due to the hard work of the Aviation Development team.

“Porto is a great coastal city with incredible history, while Naples offers so much to see and do, and opens opportunities for passengers to explore the wonderful Amalfi coastline.

“These destinations will provide further connectivity for Shannon and the region, and highlights Shannon’s continued growth since the pandemic,” Ms Considine said.

The Shannon Airport Group chair said it is extremely encouraging for the tourism industry across the region and along the Wild Atlantic Way, and that these services will complement the exciting variety of destinations Shannon Airport has to offer for Summer ‘23.

Ryanair’s Dara Brady noted that the airline is now delivering over 180 weekly flights across a selection of 26 exciting must-see sunny hotspots and vibrant city break destinations across Europe.

He added: “To mark this good news, we’ve launched a limited-time seat sale for early bird customers looking to bag themselves a recession busting bargain on their Summer ’23 holiday with fares starting from just €29.99 available now on Ryanair.com.”

Today’s good news follows a further boost for Shannon last month, during the 35-year anniversary celebration of Ryanair operations from Shannon Airport.

The airline announced a third based aircraft for Shannon and two new services to Beziers in the South of France and Newcastle in the UK for Summer ‘23.

The bumper summer schedule follows Shannon Airport’s biggest ever Ryanair winter schedule which currently operates 60 flights per week to a mix of sun, ski, and city break destinations.

For the past 35 years, Ryanair has successfully operated from Shannon carrying over 18 million passengers to date and promoting important rural development by investing heavily in the region.

This includes the recent opening of its €10 million 3-bay heavy maintenance facility at Shannon creating over 200 new high-skill jobs in Clare.
