Shannon Group statement Wednesday 25th September 2019
Commenting on Ryanair’s decision to cut services at Irish airports, Mary Considine, Acting CEO, Shannon Group said: “We are disappointed with Ryanair’s decision to cut Shannon services to Bristol, East Midlands and Ibiza from January 2020. In light of the slowdown in the global economy and the uncertainty of Brexit, this is a particularly challenging time for global aviation. In the last week alone, we have seen the closure and suspension of flights by three European airlines.
“Ryanair is a valued airline partner and we understand the turbulent global economic climate that the aviation industry is facing. Ryanair will continue to operate 15 routes and carry 775,000 passengers from Shannon in 2020, and we are actively engaging with all our airline partners to explore opportunities to attract new Shannon services.”
