“The Ireland brand in America’s very strong; we’re still regarded as a dream destination, and the investment by airlines..for example we have five new routes that came into Ireland, they’re being maintained next year; and on top of that….United Airlines have announced an additional 90 flights to come into Shannon from Chicago” he said.
“We’ve also got additional air access coning in from Toronto with Aer Lingus and Bruges – they’re new routes” he added.
