The Transport Minister insists the government is “very seriously” considering the distribution of air traffic amongst Ireland’s airports.

Over recent years, there have been continuous calls for policies which would support more traffic to come to Shannon, at a time when Dublin has continued to grow.

Dublin Airport has carried 87% of all passengers in Irish Airports this year, and it’s seeking further growth with the development of a third runway.


While many here would like to see more growth at Shannon, Minister Shane Ross has told Clare FM that he would too, but that to address this is a matter of broader government policy.
