Ryanair is to start a new route between Shannon Airport and Barcelona Girona from next month.

The twice-weekly service will start on 29th March, with flights operating every Tuesday and Saturday until the end of October.

It is Ryanair's second Shannon Airport route to the Catalonia region.

"We know that restoring connectivity is important to our airport customers and that is why we have been working hard with our airline partners to create exciting holiday opportunities," said Shannon CEO Mary Considine. "This is incredibly positive news for Shannon Airport.

"We have been working closely with Ryanair to deliver this service and are looking forward to the commencement of it at the end of March."

""We are pleased to add this new route to Girona as part of our summer '22 schedule from Shannon," said Ryanair's director of commercial Jason McGuinness. "Girona is the perfect destination for anyone seeking an authentic Spanish city escape, with its winding cobbled streets, medieval architecture and tasty Spanish cuisine.
