Shannon Airport Welcomes September Traffic Boost

Shannon Airport has welcomed new Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) figures for flight activity into Irish airports in September which highlight the positive year Shannon is having.

"Remarkable Growth"

Commenting on the new figures, Shannon Airport managing director Andrew Murphy said,  “We had an increase in commercial terminal flight movements of over 16% in September compared to the same month last year, the biggest growth rate of any Irish airport in the month. That’s remarkable growth by any standards.

“It’s down to a lot of hard work by our entire staff here, making it easy for our customers to fly from Shannon. We first of all have to get the airlines in to operate new services and this has been a very good summer in that regard, with new destinations across key markets, the UK, Europe and transatlantic. Our second task is to do what we can to support airlines in promoting our services and we’ve been very busy on that front.”
