Shannon Airport Growth Plans Get Major Boost as Ryanair Commits to 300,000 Additional Passengers Per Year

The new services that Ryanair will commence from next year are Berlin, Paris, Fuerteventura, Warsaw, Faro, Munich, Nice and Krakow, with an increase in frequency between Stansted and Shannon.


The separation of the airport was the first in a two phase process, the second element of which is the merging of the airport with the activities of the restructured regional development agency Shannon Development. 

The new Shannon Group plc, to be formally established by legislation in the coming months, will develop both the airport and its property assets, sustainably grow annual passenger numbers - with a 2.5million passenger target within five years - and create an International Aviation Services Centre (IASC).

The International Aviation Services Centre (IASC) will focus on further developing the existing 40 aviation related businesses currently employing 1,600 people at Shannon into a globally significant aerospace cluster.
