Aer Lingus announce 2 new routes from SHANNON !

Aer Lingus will fly direct from Shannon Airport to Barcelona and Paris, starting in March and May of next year, respectively.The new summer routes represent a 19pc increase in the airline's capacity at Shannon, bringing to nine the total number of flights it operates from the airport.

The Paris Charles de Gaulle service takes off next March 29, with an Airbus A320 flying every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from €39.99 each-way.

Barcelona services will commence on May 2, also on an A320, flying every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with one-way fares from €49.99.

The announcement follows news that Lauda, the low-cost Austrian airline owned by Ryanair, will operate a new direct flight from Shannon to Vienna next year.

The routes are a much-needed fillip for Shannon, which has shed over 120,000 seats this year due to the loss of Boeing 737 Max flights with Norwegian and Air Canada.

Ryanair, which also flies seasonally to Barcelona from the airport, has said it will discontinue Shannon services to Bristol, East Midlands and Ibiza from January 2020
