Shannon Airport is set to lose a European route from its schedule next month.
It comes as Ryanair has announced it will cease to operate its Shannon to Warsaw – Modlin service.
The low budget airliner has confirmed that it will no longer deliver its twice weekly Shannon to Warsaw Modlin service from November 5th.
Prior to this announcement there had been two round trips each week between the Clare airport and the Polish base.
The development comes amid a major cut to Ryanair’s winter schedule which will place a total of 200 Irish jobs at risk.
Ryanair claim that despite delivering several growth proposals which would have doubled passenger traffic at Modlin and delivered transformational growth for the wider Mazovia region, Modlin management have inexplicably rejected each opportunity to conclude a deal to the detriment of local connectivity, jobs and the economy.
There are still routes in place connecting Clare and Poland, however, with the some of Shannon’s most popular inbound routes to Krockaw and Wrocklaw still operating.
A spokesperson for Ryanair said the cut could have been avoided if bosses at Modlin, Warsaw’s secondary airport, had concluded talks on a long-term growth deal.
Hence the last service between Shannon and Modlin will take off at 5.50am on Monday, November 6.
