New Liverpool Route from Shannon for 2023

Shannon Airport received yet another boost today with the announcement of a new Liverpool service with Ryanair set to operate twice weekly on Fridays and Sundays from the 26th of March next year. This comes on top of the announcement less than three weeks ago of new Ryanair services to Naples in Italy and Porto in Portugal. It is part of the Shannon Airport Group’s work to build back air services, which has seen considerable success. Summer 2023 will see Ryanair operate 27 routes from Shannon with three based aircraft providing over 180 weekly flights to sun and city break destinations. This latest announcement represents a capacity growth of over 35% on Ryanair services from Shannon for next Summer. This comes in addition to their €10 million investment with the recent opening of their 3-bay heavy maintenance hangar facility at Shannon creating over 200 new high-skilled jobs. 

The Friday flight from Liverpool John Lennon Airport will arrive in Shannon at 7.55 am and with the outbound leg, departing at 8.20 am, and will arrive back in Liverpool at 09.30 am. On Sundays, the flight will depart from Liverpool at 7.55 pm and arrive at Shannon Airport at 8.55 pm with a return to Liverpool departing at 9.30 pm.

Commenting on the announcement, the CEO of the Shannon Airport Group, Mary Considine said: “It is great to see our partnership with Ryanair delivering further for our region. We are delighted to see Ryanair continue to capitalise on the opportunities available from our region and demonstrate their commitment to Shannon. Many members of the public were keen to see this service back on the schedule and we are delighted to have worked with Ryanair to make it happen. This new Liverpool service not alone represents opportunities for passengers from Shannon to travel to an extremely popular city but also represents a tourism opportunity for this region. Our passengers across the region can take advantage of the convenience of flying from Shannon and jet off to a growing range of destinations as we continue to focus on building back our air services following the pandemic.” 

Also commenting was Ryanair’s Director of Digital & Marketing, Dara Brady who said, “Ryanair continues to grow in Shannon and across our network with an abundant schedule now on sale for the Summer’23 season. This new route from our mid-west Irish base to Liverpool will allow our customers to plan a city break to the waterside city and equally allow Liverpool customers to explore the beauty of Shannon and surrounding regions.”
