Published on : Wednesday, October 12, 2016

unnamed-31Tourism Ireland warmly welcomes today’s announcement by SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) of a new flight from Stockholm to Shannon for next year. The new service will operate twice weekly, from August until mid-October 2017, and will certainly provide a welcome boost for tourism from Sweden to Shannon and the West of Ireland.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “The announcement of a new SAS flight from Stockholm to Shannon is good news for Irish tourism in 2017 and will certainly expand travel options for Swedish holidaymakers wishing to visit Co Clare and the West of Ireland. We look forward to working with SAS and Shannon Airport to maximise the promotion of the new service. As an island destination, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism.

“The Nordic Region is an important market for tourism to the island of Ireland, with the latest CSO figures indicating growth of about +3.5% in Nordic visitors to Ireland, for the January to August period.”
