Barcelona service gets Shannon tourist season off to flying start


THE summer season got off to a flying start this week with the inaugural service to Barcelona-Girona taking off from Shannon Airport.

It is the second Ryanair service to the Catalonia region from Shannon Airport and will operate twice weekly, each Tuesday and Saturday until the end of October.

Barcelona–Girona offers multiple destination options for holidaymakers from Shannon due to its central location between Barcelona and Costa Brava. Girona is just a 38-minute train journey from Barcelona, served by regular rail services.

The city is known for having one of the best-preserved Jewish neighbourhoods in Europe and was also one of the filming locations for the HBO series, Game of Thrones.

The new service will be welcome news to many football enthusiasts as in addition to the already established Shannon-Barcelona service, this offers them an additional access option for the opportunity to watch FC Barcelona in action.

The new Barcelona-Girona service is part of Ryanair’s summer schedule which is delivering over 60 weekly flights from Shannon Airport to more than 20 destinations.
