The CSO has recorded an increase in passenger numbers at Shannon Airport in the first three months of this year.

Just over 277,000 people flew through the Airport between January and March – that’s up by over 5,000 on the same time last year, but is a reduction of a similar amount when compared with 2016.

Shannon has also recorded 150,000 fewer passengers than Cork Airport in the same timeframe, but Airport management have previously pointed out that the CSO figures don’t take transit passengers into account.


London’s three main Airports were Shannon’s busiest destinations, followed by Manchester and Boston.

Management at Shannon have expressed confidence about their summer figures, and is operating its largest number of US services in 17 years.
