New Turkish Routes from Shannon

TURKISH delight was on the menu in Shannon this week with the announcement that a charter operator is to double the number of its flights to Bodrum in 2013. Up to 6,000 extra passengers are expected through the airport next year as the WingsAbroad company extends its Shannon service. The company has confirmed that it’s to double its flights to Bodrum in Turkey  next summer, after a successful first season this year.

“I am delighted with the success of our Shannon service to Bodrum this summer, due to the large support we received from the travel trade and our customers in the region,” said Tayfun Gokpinar, Managing Director, WingsAbroad.  “We have a large customer base in the Shannon and Munster region and, thanks to all the support received from our customers and Shannon Airport, we are now able to invest further in the Shannon market.”

The service will now operate from the end of May, finishing in late September.

Declan Power, Senior manager of Aviation Business Development at Shannon, says the move is a “vote of confidence” for the airport.
