“Aviation has a long journey ahead, but It is great at last to see some green shoots of recovery. This is another step in slowly rebuilding our air services and brings to nine the number of Ryanair services announced for Shannon to-date. As the vaccine roll-out programme increases and we look forward to the lifting of the non-essential travel ban on July 19 with the introduction of the EU Digital Covid Certificate, people can again begin to plan for much-deserved holiday breaks.”
Shannon Group is delighted to welcome the announcement by @Ryanair of a new service from @ShannonAirport to Turin in Northern Italy. The new winter service will run weekly on Saturdays starting on 18th December ’21 to 26th March ’22.
