Lauda Announces New Route Between Shannon And Vienna

Low cost Austrian airline Lauda has announced that it will be operating a new route between Shannon Airport and Vienna next year.

Flights will operate on the new route every Wednesday and Saturday from the end of March 2020.

"Very Positive News"

In a statement on Shannon Airport's website, the airport's managing director, Andrew Murphy, said, "This is very positive news for Shannon as not alone do we get a scheduled service to one of Europe's most visited cities and a strong inbound market for tourists to Ireland, but we are also getting a new carrier on the runway here as well. We have been working closely with Lauda and their parent, Ryanair, to deliver this service, and are looking forward to the airline commencing operation in the new year.

"This will be the first summer service connecting Austrian holidaymakers directly to the Wild Atlantic Way, and, as such, provides an opportunity to attract more visitors to this breathtakingly beautiful part of Ireland."
