The Joint Committee on Transport and Communications is visiting Shannon Airport and the Irish Aviation Authority centre today.

The committee, which comprises 14 members from the Dáil and Seanad, will meet with Shannon Group Chair Designate, Conal Henry and CEO Mary Considine to discuss air-traffic recovery to-date, projections for passenger growth and new routes, and the group’s overall performance.

They’ll also tour the US pre-clearance facilities.


In the afternoon, the committee will meet with IAA CEO Peter Kearney to tour their facilities and discuss operations, particularly in the context of Irish controlled and managed airspace, which have been the subject of recent attention and interest.
