Tourism Ireland has welcomed the announcement that United Airlines will reinstate its service between Chicago and Shannon Airport in time for summer 2023.

The daily service will begin in May 2023, helping to boost tourism from the US market to the West of Ireland.

Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, said they were really pleased to hear that United Airlines will reinstate its service between Chicago and Shannon Airport next May.

He said that Tourism Ireland is looking forward to working closely with United, to maximise the promotion of this service.

“As an island, direct, convenient and competitive access services are critical to restoring growth in inbound tourism,” said Mr Gibbons.

“Tourism Ireland is committed to working with United, Shannon Airport and other tourism interests to drive demand for this new service, and all other services to the island of Ireland, and help maintain our vital network of routes and services.

“The United States remains an extremely important market for tourism to the island of Ireland. In 2019, we welcomed 1.7 million American visitors, whose visits delivered €1.6 billion for the economy.”
