The chief executive of the Irish budget carrier, Michael O’Leary, has announced that Ryanair will be adding a sixth aircraft to its Shannon operation, and making an overall investment of more than $70 million, for the launch of two new routes connecting the airport in the west of Ireland with Frankfurt-Hahn and Newcastle. He added that there will also be 26 flights added on existing routes connecting Shannon with Bristol, Edinburgh, Paris and other European cities.

To accommodate the new routes and added flights, the Shannon-East Midland route will be cut and flight frequency reduced on Shannon-Luton route, from 31 October.

O’Leary revealed the news at the Shannon Airport: "There's a double celebration at Shannon Airport this week. We're celebrating the arrival of a 6th based aircraft and 2 new routes which go on sale today. With 35 low fare Ryanair routes from Shannon, the people of the mid west region can buy the guaranteed lowest fares and no fuel surcharges all over the UK and Europe."

He continued: "These 26 new weekly flights will bring more than 5,000 added passengers each week to Shannon airport.”
