Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said:

"We are pleased to launch our Shannon winter 2016 schedule, with 12 routes in total and two new winter services to Fuerteventura and Malaga, which will help deliver 760,000 customers per annum and support 600 'on-site' jobs at Shannon Airport."

To mark the announcement of the new routes, Ryanair is releasing 100,000 seats for sale across its European network from €19.99. These are available until Monday July 4th for booking, for travel until October.

Head of Aviation Development at Shannon Airport, Declan Power said:

"This is really good news for our passengers as we have had many requests over recent years for both Fuerteventura and Malaga services.

"They are popular services for winter breaks to the sun and for golfing trips so we are delighted to be able to deliver again for our passengers.

"It is also another very positive commitment by Ryanair at Shannon. In all, the airline will have 12 services from Shannon this winter, offering the type of destinations and frequencies that our passengers want."

The news comes as Ryanair plans to shift investment away from the UK post-Brexit result, and focus instead on the European Union.
