Karl Bowe, Portugal, Zanna Wisnieska, Poland and Mark Rimpo help launch Ryanair summer schedule from Shannon airport with nine new routes.<br />
<br />
Shannon Airport will enter significant growth mode this week as nine new routes commence in five days in a major boost for tourism and business interests here as well as for passengers seeking access to some of Europe’s leading destinations.<br />
<br />
Less than 15 months after the airport was made independent,  Shannon will enjoy its biggest week in almost a decade in terms of new route start-ups as Ryanair launches new services, to Munich, Paris, Faro, Warsaw, Krakow, Nice, Poitiers, Berlin, Fuerteventura, while Aer Lingus Regional kicks-off a new Bristol service.<br />
<br />
The 2014 summer season, which officially begins in April, will see 16 service enhancements at Shannon, including the nine new routes.  Among the enhanced services is the now year-round Aer Lingus New York service which commenced yesterday, Sunday.  This will be a six times weekly service and is the first time Aer Lingus will have operated year-round on New York since 2009.<br />
<br />
Aer Lingus also yesterday started a new twice weekly Malaga service, which will add to the significantly expanded European network to and from the airport this year.<br />
