Shannon Group has welcomed the Government’s recognition of the importance of air connectivity into the regions and the critical role this plays in driving economic growth.

Minister Shane Ross has announced 2.5 million euro in funding for regional airports to help them strike deals with airlines to secure new routes.

The funding is expected to grow to 10 million over the coming years, but that will be dependent on the Government of the day.


Details of how the fund will be used has yet to be announced, but Acting CEO of Shannon Group, Mary Considine, has been telling Clare FM’s Fiona Cahill that it will make a difference.
