More than 10 million euro in State funding has been announced for Shannon Airport this morning.

The support is being administered under the Regional Airports Programme, the Covid-19 Regional State Airports Programme and the Covid-19 Supplementary Supports Scheme for Irish Airports.

It forms part of a national package announced by Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Hildegarde Naughton, of almost €108 million in direct Exchequer supports for the country’s airports.


Shannon Group CEO Mary Considine says it’s vital that funding is sustained throughout Shannon Airport’s recovery period.
