New Shannon service to Barcelona-Girona


A NEW Barcelona-Girona service from Shannon Airport is to begin next month.

It will operate twice weekly, each Tuesday and Saturday, commencing Tuesday, March 29 until the end of October 2022.

Welcoming the service Mary Considine, CEO, Shannon, “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. This is incredibly positive news for Shannon Airport. We have been working closely with Ryanair to deliver this service and are looking forward to the commencement of it at the end of March.”

Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness said, “We are pleased to add this new route to Girona as part of our summer ‘22 schedule from Shannon. This route will operate twice weekly for the summer season, starting from March 29. Girona is the perfect destination for anyone seeking an authentic Spanish city escape, with its winding cobbled streets, medieval architecture and tasty Spanish cuisine.”

Barcelona is considered by many to be both the cosmopolitan and cultural capital of Spain and is famous for its stunning architecture, vibrant cultural heritage, lively nightlife, sandy beaches, wonderful cuisine, and a world-class soccer club. It is a two and a half hours flight time from Shannon.
