Aer Lingus has today unveiled two new summer routes direct from Shannon for 2020, commencing flights to Paris, France from March and to Barcelona, Spain from May next year.

With a rich and proud heritage, Barcelona is the capital city of Catalonia and is famed for its unique architecture, much of which is the work of architect and sculptor Antoni Gaudí.

The city was his studio and a walk around the area reveals many of his most famous works from the topsy-turvey houses of Casa Batlló and Casa Milà, to the unfinished Basílica de la Sagrada Família and the astoundingly ornate Parc Güell, Barcelona’s best picnic spot boasting panoramic views.

In France, the City of Love awaits as Aer Lingus reveals it will fly direct to Paris from Shannon next summer.

The capital city on the banks of the Seine has endless experiences to offer, from excursions up the Eiffel Tower and witnessing the rebuilding of the Notre-Dame Cathedral, to musing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre and dancing the night away at the Moulin Rouge. Pack some mouse ears and make a day trip to Disneyland while in the area.

The new destinations mean that Aer Lingus will now operate nine summer routes from Shannon, up from seven in 2019, as well as a winter only route to Lanzarote.
