Shannon Airport has been given another major vote of approval by the airline industry after it was shortlisted for the fifth consecutive year for the prestigious World Routes Marketing Awards.

After claiming the ‘Best Marketing of Airports’ award for an airport under 4 million passengers last year for the second time in three years, Shannon has again been shortlisted for this year’s competition.



The World Routes Marketing awards recognise new air route successes from across the globe, making them one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the aviation industry.

Voted on by the airlines, the airports are nominated on the basis of exceptional marketing supports during the launch of new routes or the strengthening of existing services.

Shannon won the award in both 2016 and 2014 and was also ‘Highly Commended’ in 2015, and in 2013, its inaugural year as an independent entity.

In the past twelve months alone, Shannon has welcomed new services from four airlines, Scandinavian Airlines, Lufthansa, Norwegian Air International and Kuwait Airways.

The winners of this year’s awards will be announced at a ceremony during the World Routes 2017 conference in Barcelona – a three day event attended by 3,000 airline, airport and tourism industry representatives.
