Vueling launches route from Shannon to Paris Orly
Shannon Airport has welcomed a new Vueling route to Paris Orly. The service is operated twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays. Passengers on the inaugural flight were treated to a taste of France at the blue, white and red dressed gate area. Freshly made crêpes by a French chef were served in celebration of the new service, along with a Parisian themed cake.
“This is an exciting day for our passengers heading to the beautiful city of Paris and a great day for our team who work hard to grow connectivity options for our passengers from Shannon,” said Mary Considine, CEO The Shannon Airport Group. “We would like to warmly welcome our new scheduled partner Vueling to Shannon and look forward to working with them. Paris is a wonderful city break destination for outbound holidaymakers and opens the way for French tourists to explore the Wild Atlantic Way via Shannon Airport.”
Charlotte Dumesnil, Sales Director, Vueling, commented: “We are delighted to expand our Irish operations with our first route from Shannon to Paris Orly, building on our existing Irish connections whilst also offering inbound passengers ease of access to the West Coast of Ireland. This new direct route reinforces Vueling’s interest in providing a more flexible and varied proposition for travellers based in Ireland.”
