From March 27 Aer Lingus will introduce a new daily flight between Shannon and London Gatwick.
The airline currently only operates the route from Heathrow, with three flights a day.
Declan Kearney, Aer Lingus’ director of communications, said the new flight will be the first early morning flight from London to the Shannon region.
Flight EI917 will depart London Gatwick at 6.50am, arriving into Shannon at 8.15am.
Flight EI916 will leave Shannon at 9am, arriving into Gatwick at 10.25am.
Kearney said: “It will complement the existing London Heathrow service... broadening the choice for business and leisure travellers in and out of the Mid-West region.”
With the start of the new service, Aer Lingus will serve nine destinations from Shannon Airport, including Paris, New York and Boston.
