BUDGET airline Ryanair has announced an increase in its services from Shannon Airport next summer.
In Limerick this afternoon, the carrier’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs has announced that flights between Kaunas in Lithuania are to double, as are the year-round flights to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.
Both will rise from once a week to twice a week.
Meanwhile, there are also increases on services between Shannon and London Gatwick which will revert to seven days a week, having operated six days during the winter period.
The service between Shannon and London Stansted airport will continue to operate twice daily, in the morning and evening.
Meanwhile, a number of ‘summer sun’ flights are set to return to the airport, with Palma, Malaga and Fuerteventura set to be connected.
A service to Memmingen, near Munich in Germany, will also return for next summer’s season, which kicks off next April.
A twice-weekly service to Poitiers in France will also return, while the once a week service to Tenerife will also return to Shannon.
In total, 19 Ryanair routes will operate out of Shannon next summer.
