Passenger numbers at Shannon Airport are set to take off this August Bank Holiday weekend.

The Midwest facility’s Bank Holiday passenger figures continue to surpass pre-covid numbers, with 48,000 passengers expected to pass through its doors over the long weekend.

It represents a 25 per cent increase in passenger traffic on the same period last year and a nine per cent rise on figures over the August Bank Holiday in 2019.



During the first six months of this year the airport has recorded its highest passenger traffic figures in over a decade, signifying a strong rebound in overseas travel.

CEO of the Shannon Airport Group, Mary Considine says new services will play a pivotal role in continued growth for the county’s airport.
