Ryanair has launched a new twice-weekly route between Shannon and Ibiza, which will operate every Wednesday and Sunday between now and the end of October.
The airline has also launched a twice-weekly service from Shannon to East Midlands, which will depart the former airport at 8.20am on Mondays and 9.10pm on Fridays until the end of October.
Shannon Airport managing director Andrew Murphy commented, "2018 was our best year in over a decade at Shannon and the launch of these two new routes as part of our packed summer schedule is very exciting for us. Ibiza is known as a party-island, but is so much more than that, with quieter parts of the island offering some stunning locations for a sedate and luxurious holiday. It’s a brilliant addition to our summer sun schedule."
He continued, "East Midlands is a gateway to a really interesting part of the UK, giving access to the likes of Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, all of which have a huge range of things to do and see, very interesting heritage and vibrant culture. It’s an excellent addition to our UK schedule and a real statement about the importance and potential of the UK market, despite Brexit uncertainty."
