Liverpool airport aviation development director Paul Winfield said; “We are delighted to see the return of Shannon to the Liverpool network for summer 2018.

“This new service will allow passengers from across the North-west market to enjoy a faster, easier, friendlier experience when travelling to and from Shannon.”
