Aviation Development

Shannon Airport is the most westerly international airport in Europe and is strategically located on Ireland's west coast, between the third and forth largest cities, in one of the most important and fastest growing business corridors in the country. 

Shannon has one of the best open weather records in Europe.  The temperature climate and 3,200m runway allow for maximum operational conditions winter and summer.  It is unhampered by operational or local authority restrictions.  No restrictive noise abatement procedures apply day or night.  Neither curfew nor slotting arrangements exist.

At Shannon Airport we are committed to developing new routes and services for our customers. It is our intention to sustain and expand the range of routes available and we recognise that a priority for customers choosing Shannon is efficient and convenient access to global air services.

As a commercial company, we wish to encourage the development of services which meet our customer requirements. In this regard we will support the commencement of new routes and traffic growth through our route support and incentive schemes.

The Aviation Development team work in partnership with our airline and tour operator customers to develop and maintain commercially viable services at Shannon. For assistance with research into traffic trends, demand analysis and further information about Shannon please contact us:
