Making the announcement in Shannon alongside the airport’s Chairperson and Chief Executive, Aer Arann’s Chief Commercial Officer, Simon Fagan said its Shannon expansion programme was a key part of the airline’s growth plan, and will provide further choice for passengers flying to and from the region.

Mr Fagan said: ‘We are delighted to announce our Shannon expansion programme. The airline is determined to grow both our passenger numbers and route network. The addition of a new destination and the doubling of our capacity on two key routes from Shannon, provides real choice to the travelling public, and will serve to bring further visitors to the region.

 ‘Our decision to move ahead with expansion in Shannon is directly related to the recent Government decision to abolish the travel tax, and is further evidence that sound policies can contribute to solid growth.
