SHANNON Airport's longest serving US airline has confirmed that its seasonal non-stop New York JFK service will operate again next summer.
Delta Airlines will return to Shannon next May operating a daily service throughout the summer season, adding 2,300 seats per week to and from the US.
The news from Delta follows recent announcements from two other US carriers which, when combined, will provide an estimated 25pc jump in passenger traffic at Shannon next summer.
Delta's senior vice-president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Perry Cantarutti, said: "Shannon has long been a favourite destination for US holidaymakers and it makes sense to operate our service when customers most want to visit."
