It’s claimed Ryanair pulling Shannon to London services is a “realistic possibility” as part of Brexit.

The budget airline’s CEO Michael O’Leary indicated he’ll axe the flights if Britain fails to negotiate an open skies agreement with the EU.

Shannon offers daily Ryanair flights to both Gatwick and Stansted year-round – these services make up the bulk of their air traffic.


Irish South Fine Gael MEP Deirdre Clune is a member of the European Parliament Transport Committee – she says O’Leary’s comments are a real threat.
