Shannon Airport Gets New Liverpool Route

Shannon Airport will receive a new Liverpool service from Ryanair that will operate twice weekly, on Fridays and Sundays, from 26 March 2023.


The Friday flight from Liverpool John Lennon Airport will arrive in Shannon at 7.55am, and the outbound leg will depart at 8.20am. On Sundays, the flight will arrive at Shannon Airport at 8.55pm and return to Liverpool at 9.30pm.


Welcoming the announcement, Mary Considine, CEO, the Shannon Airport Group, said, “It is great to see our partnership with Ryanair delivering further for our region. We are delighted to see Ryanair continue to capitalise on the opportunities available from our region and demonstrate their commitment to Shannon. Many members of the public were keen to see this service back on the schedule, and we are delighted to have worked with Ryanair to make it happen.

“This new Liverpool service not alone represents opportunities for passengers from Shannon to travel to an extremely popular city, but also represents a tourism opportunity for this region. Our passengers across the region can take advantage of the convenience of flying from Shannon and jet off to a growing range of destinations, as we continue to focus on building back our air services following the pandemic.”

Ryanair’s director of digital and marketing, Dara Brady, said, “Ryanair continues to grow in Shannon and across our network, with an abundant schedule now on sale for the summer ’23 season. This new route, from our Midwest Irish base to Liverpool, will allow our customers to plan a city break to the waterside city and equally allow Liverpool customers to explore the beauty of Shannon and surrounding regions.”
