Commenting on the new services, the CEO of the Shannon Group, Mary Considine which owns and manages Shannon Airport said, “This is another milestone moment in our efforts to rebuild our air services. We are delighted to be able to offer our airport customers these three new diverse destinations from Shannon.  Whether it’s a sun holiday to recharge, a cultural break or a shopping trip, the choice is there. During the pandemic, we have taken time to invest in new technology to make our passengers’ journey through the airport even easier. For example, we’ve just begun operating our new €2.5 million state-of-the-art security screening system which Is halving the time our customers spend in the airport security screening area by making the removal of laptops and liquids from cabin bags a thing of the past. Combined with the latest technologically advanced security scanning equipment, it reduces touchpoints and is making our passengers journey through security quicker and easier. We know that restoring connectivity and rebuilding our air services is hugely important for our customers, and these three new popular destinations are welcome additions. We have a long way to go, but with 18 Ryanair services now available from Shannon, we are on the right path.”
