Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, has announced that the airline is to recommence its Birmingham to Shannon service, beginning in June.
The airline will operate six return flights per week, every day except Saturday and prices start from £29.99 one way including taxes.
William Pearson, aviation development director at Birmingham Airport, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back this Birmingham –Shannon service, operated by Aer Lingus Regional. We know the demand is there so it’s great to see the airline respond by re-introducing this popular route.
“The strong links that exist between the two regions and the choice offered to passengers, allowing them to return the same day, makes this service a very welcome addition to our existing network of flights to Ireland.”
The route will provide a convenient and accessible connection to some of Ireland’s most scenic regions including Clare, Galway and Limerick for Birmingham-based passengers.
Commenting, Ronan Whitty, Head of Revenue Management at Stobart Air said that the airline was delighted to recommence the Aer Lingus Regional service from Birmingham to Shannon which is a popular route for passengers.
"The passenger demand for this service is there, and together with our colleagues at Birmingham Airport, we will make a major push to develop and growth this route, particularly ahead of our busy summer season.
"Birmingham is one of Britain’s most popular cities for Irish passengers. Recommencing the route will once again facilitate travel for business and leisure passengers - providing a gateway to one of Ireland’s most commercial, scenic and cultural regions for UK passengers and a direct and convenient link for Irish passengers travelling to the UK.
"We look forward to welcoming passengers on board" he said.
