Initiative To Stimulate Hotel Bookings And Promote Air Services At Shannon Airport Launched

An initiative to stimulate hotel bookings and promote air services at Shannon Airport has been launched.


A statement published on Shannon Airport's website said, "Shannon Group and Ennis, Limerick, Shannon and Galway Chambers of Commerce have teamed up on an exciting initiative designed to stimulate hotel bookings and highlight the range of air services available from Shannon Airport.

"A new innovative #StayAndWin campaign will see visitors who stay at a Chamber of Commerce member hotel in Clare, Limerick or Galway get a pleasant surprise during October as they will be eligible to enter a free competition to win one of four flights for two people to a choice of any of the 18 Shannon Airport destinations this winter, which includes services to six new destinations. Free airport parking is also included in the prize.

"Running from 4th October to 1st November, four winners will be selected, one from each Chamber district, Limerick, Shannon, Ennis and Galway.

"The idea behind the promotion is to support local hoteliers in the shoulder season and raise awareness of the exciting range of air services available from Shannon Airport. Hoteliers will benefit as it gives them an incentive to gain extra business and reward loyal customers, and Shannon Airport routes benefit from the promotional campaign run by hotels and Chamber members and the airport."


Shannon Group CEO Statement

In a statement also published on Shannon Airport's website, Shannon Airport operator Shannon Group's CEO, Mary Considine, said, "We are delighted to be working with our Chamber partners and hotels to stimulate footfall in the region's accommodation sector and raise awareness of the destinations available from Shannon Airport. We hope this will be the first of many such collaborations."

Additional Information

Shannon Airport added, "The respective CEOs of Limerick, Shannon, Ennis and Galway Chambers welcome this shoulder season promotion which further supports staycations in the region and see it as further proof of the positive working relationship now firmly established between the Chambers in the region and Shannon Airport.

"The campaign will use and promote the hashtag #StayAndWin and will drive the promotion via social media platforms. The winners will be announced on the Chambers and Shannon Airport websites on 2nd November."
