Shannon Influence On Ireland Is Honoured

Shannon Airport’s influence on Ireland’s economic development has been recognised in a major new award.

The Irish Chapter of the Project Management Institute has recognised the development of Shannon, Dublin and Cork airports has been recognised as the most influential project undertaken in Ireland over the past 50 years.

It was chosen from a shortlist of eight in a public vote, beating off the likes of the State motorway programme, the Wild Atlantic Way, and even the smoking ban.


This year, Shannon celebrated the 80th anniversary of its first passenger aircraft, and the Airport has consistantly been to the fore with developments there including the establishment of Duty Free, and becoming the first Airport outside of the Americas to offer US preclearance.
