Vueling Add New Service to Shannon

Vueling Airlines has announced it will start a new twice weekly service from Paris Orly to Shannon. The new service will operate on Mondays and Fridays from the 12th of September. Today’s announcement is a further boost to Shannon Airport’s pandemic recovery which will now see the airport operate 27 services to the US, UK, and Europe. Orly Airport is the nearest airport to the centre of Paris, just 13km from the city of lights. It is the second-largest airport in France and provides hub connectivity with onward connections to major European cities and Middle Eastern countries.

Commenting on the new route announcement, the Shannon Group CEO, Mary Considine said, “We are delighted to welcome our new carrier Vueling, part of IAG, to Shannon Airport. This service is another major boost for inbound and outbound business and tourism interests in the region. We have been working closely with Vueling to deliver the service and are looking forward to seeing our passengers jet off to this globally renowned city, steeped in culture and history. Paris is one of the most popular cities in the world and we know this will be an exciting destination for our passengers to enjoy.”

Also commenting was Vueling’s Chief Commercial, Strategy, Customer and Network officer, Carolyn Prowse said, “Vueling has scheduled a total of 114 destinations in 31 countries until 29 October 2022, reaching a very similar level of operations to 2019. We are very excited to see a progressive development of business this year and to keep expanding the airline’s offering across Europe. The new direct route between Shannon and Paris Orly airports reinforces Vueling’s interest in providing a more flexible and varied offer to travellers based in Ireland.”
