Ryanair will operate a new route from Shannon to Corfu this summer.

The new service will operate twice weekly from July, as part of Ryanair’s Irish Summer ’21 Schedule. The airline says the route will help boost air traffic as vaccination programmes continue and Europe prepares to re-open for summer holiday season.

This is the first time that Ryanair has  operated a Corfu service from Shannon Airport.

The carrier added: “Irish consumers can now book a summer getaway, flying on the lowest fares and with the option to avail of Ryanair’s zero change fee should plans change.”

Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said: “As vaccination rollout programmes continue in the coming months, we are hopeful that international travel will recover and we are delighted to announce this new route from Shannon to Corfu, operating twice weekly from July.

Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, customers can now book flights for a well-deserved break knowing that if they need to postpone or change their travel dates, they can do so up to two times with a zero-change fee until the end of October 2021.”

We have been working closely with Ryanair, to deliver this service and are looking forward to the airline commencing operations.

With an excellent climate throughout the year, this new scheduled service to Corfu is expected to be popular with Irish holidaymakers.
