Air Traffic at Shannon took off last month.

The latest figures from the Irish Aviation Authority show a 5.8% rise in the number of commercial terminal traffic at the Midwest Airport in October.

It’s the highest of any Irish Airport, with Cork and Dublin experiencing rises of 4.3% and 3.4% respectively.


The IAA has said the figures are positive, particularly in light of the adverse weather caused by Storm Ophelia last month.
