A NEW Ryanair Shannon-Malta service is to commence in March of next year.
It will be the first time Ryanair have run a Malta service from Shannon and it will operate twice weekly, each Thursday (departing Shannon at 5.25pm) and Sunday (departing Shannon at 10.40am), running from March 27 until October 27.
Malta is expected to be a popular destination with holidaymakers and brings to 20 the number of Ryanair services available from Shannon Airport next summer.
“We know that restoring connectivity is important to our airport customers and that is why we have been working hard with our airline partners to create exciting holiday opportunities,” said Shannon Group CEO Mary Considine.
“We are delighted to be able to offer our airport customers another great destination. This brings to 20 the number of destinations Ryanair will serve from Shannon next summer including the three new Ryanair services which began operation last month to Fuerteventura, Birmingham and Budapest.
“With its warm climate, breath-taking landscapes and UNESCO World Heritage sites, Malta will undoubtedly be a popular destination this summer for sun seekers and those who want to experience its culture,” added Ms Considine.
The new Malta service is part of Ryanair’s summer schedule which will deliver over 60 weekly flights from Shannon Airport to 20 destinations in 2022.
