Ireland West Airport Knock has today welcomed the announcement by Ryanair of two new services to Edinburgh and Manchester to commence in September 2021.
Both services will initially operate twice weekly and operate on a year round basis.
These new services will provide a major boost for the airport and the region as it restores critically important connectivity between the West of Ireland and Manchester and Edinburgh, restoring both services which were cancelled in March 2020 following the ceasing trading of longstanding airline partner Flybe.
Managing Director of Ireland West Airport, Joe Gilmore's, thanked the airline for its continued support during what he describes as the most challenging period in the airport's history.
Donal Healy who is Head of Marketing says today's announcement is a major vote in confidence in the airport and means that Ryanair will now offer passengers a choice of 13 destinations across the UK and Europe to and from the airport.
