I was thinking that would be an awful lot of expansion to Paris from Munster considering the recent Air France moves in Cork, but I'm not sure that Cork and Shannon are really in competition any more. With the better road and bus connections, I'm sure most people who can't find a suitable flight from their local airport are flying from Dublin instead. If anyone is making a choice between the two, they are probably in Kerry and facing a long journey to Dublin while being roughly the same distance from Cork and Shannon. So hopefully both expansions can prosper.

These could be great connections on to EIís JFK flight and possibly their BOS flight too if the times were readjusted. Either way it can only be a good thing for Shannon Airport.
As though there were a shortage of flights between Paris and JFK and BOS?

EI have huge numbers TATL connections from North America to CDG via DUB from cities with direct flights. Price is king and EI throw in the European leg for free. Connections will make or break these routes.

A year or two ago I was flying Aer Lingus CDG-DUB. I was in row 1 and could hear the flight attendants discussing passenger numbers and numbers of connecting passengers (because we were running late). Fully half the passengers on the plane were connecting onwards in Dublin.

Only on the SNN to BOS leg but not on the BOS to SNN leg. Maybe that might change with time too? Who knows. It would make sense to make as many options available as possible to make it a viable operation.

I’m liking the flight times for the new routes and will definitely use CDG to transit. Pity about LH but a Thursday/ Saturday didn’t work and it showed with mostly German tourists on board. A Monday/ Tuesday and Friday would have been more appealing.

United confirming cancellation of Shannon ops. EWR will not resume in 2021.

United are planning to retire their 757 fleet so Shannon is unfortunately affected by this decision.

Seems like death by 1,000 cuts. Turns out that breaking from DAA was a major error, despite PR attempts to portray modest traffic growth since 2008 recession (!!!) as justification. Truth is Shannon's share of Ireland's air passenger traffic has declined from 11.2% in 2007 to 4.2% in 2019 and its airfreight throughput has dwindled from ca. 50,000 tonnes p.a. to a negligible figure today. No evidence of the innovation that maintained Shannon's importance in the decades following its forecast demise with the advent of the jet age in the early 1960s.

Further bad news in that Loganair have no intention launching Scottish routes from Shannon. The rationale being the sectors are too long and yield too low. Volume is there, but they don't have the aircraft for the route.
