Shannon Airport recorded its busiest day in seven years over the June Bank Holiday weekend.

A record breaking 7,800 passengers travelled through the Midwest airport last Friday, marking the highest number of passengers to traverse Shannon Airport in one day since 2016.

The Shannon Airport Group says this was driven by its strong transatlantic performance and an expanded range of UK and European services, across 48 flights to and from 18 destinations to seven countries.


Last month, Shannon Airport experienced a 27% uplift in passenger traffic, when compared to the same period in 2022.

CEO of the Shannon Airport Group, Mary Considine says there’s a real appetite for overseas travel, as the peak holiday season approaches.
