Shannon Chamber Welcomes Restoration of Year-Round Service by Aer Lingus


Aer Lingus’ decision to deliver year-round connectivity from Shannon to New Your JFK in 2019 is welcomed by Shannon Chamber and described as a significant endorsement that this is a route much in demand by the business and leisure traveller alike.


“The West of Ireland has so much to offer investors and tourists; we just need to make it convenient for them to get here at any time of year. Year-round transatlantic connectivity is critical to this endeavour but, as stated recently, the traveller must reciprocate by choosing to fly Shannon thus ensuring that load factors are of the magnitude to guarantee route retention.


“The fact that Shannon’s 2018 transatlantic schedule  the best in 17 years, includes eight transatlantic services operated by six carriers across seven destinations, is a compelling inducement to think Shannon when choosing to fly to North America, “ said Shannon Chamber CEO Helen Downes.
