Ryanair has today announced two new routes to its Summer 2023 schedule from Shannon Airport.

The new routes to Naples in Italy and Porto in Portugal brings the airline's total number of routes to and from Shannon to 26 and marks 35% capacity growth on its schedule last year.

The new twice weekly services will run on Wednesdays and Sundays for both destinations. 

The airline will have three planes based at Shannon over the summer months and will operate over 180 flights per week from the Co Clare airport.

Mary Considine, the CEO of The Shannon Airport Group, said today's news marks another win for Shannon Airport, due to the hard work of its Aviation Development team. 

"These destinations will provide further connectivity for Shannon and the region, and highlights Shannon's continued growth since the pandemic," Ms Considine said.

"Today's announcement is also extremely encouraging for our tourism industry across the region and along the Wild Atlantic Way, and these services will complement the exciting variety of destinations Shannon Airport has to offer for Summer 2023," she added.
