Shannon Airport Passengers to Benefit from Additional 200,000 Seats this Summer

Shannon Airport passengers are set to benefit from an additional 200,000 seats available on select routes from the airport this summer.

Shannon will have increased frequencies on nine services – including to popular sunshine destinations such as Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Lanzarote. The airport will operate 33 routes to 11 countries across the EU, UK and US. A Gran Canaria service with Ryanair will also operate from Shannon during the summer season for the first time.

As the airport gears up for the start of a new daily service to New York-JFK with Delta, due to start on the May 25, travelling to the US from Shannon is now easier than ever before. Earlier this year, the airport introduced an innovative Mobile Passport Control app (MPC). MPC is a free mobile app, designed to streamline the traveller’s entry process into the US by allowing them to complete part of the pre-clearance process prior to their arrival at the airport.

This new technology, in addition to Shannon’s time-saving US Pre-clearance facility and combined EU/TSA checkpoint system, ensure an efficient and comfortable transatlantic travel experience for passengers.  

Mary Considine, CEO of The Shannon Airport Group, said: “We are expecting a busy summer at Shannon Airport, with over 200,000 additional seats and increased frequencies on nine favourite summer sun destinations. 

“What sets Shannon apart is our passionate staff, who are excited to extend the famous warm Shannon welcome to every passenger that passes through our doors. On behalf of all the team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their loyal support and encourage people to think Shannon first when planning those all-important sunshine breaks over the coming months.”
