Ryanair has already announced that it will fly once a-week to Turin in Italy from December.

Mary Considine, chief executive, Shannon Group, said three new destinations would bring to 18 the number of services that Ryanair will offer from the mid-western airport.

She acknowledged that there was a “long way to go” in restoring route numbers to their pre-pandemic levels, but added that Shannon was on the right path.
