Shannon Airport has reopened following a temporary closure this morning due to heavy fog.

While it’s very unusual for the airport to be affected by fog, it’s the second time in a week that management have been forced to suspend operations at Shannon.

As a result of the closure, scheduled inbound services were diverted to Cork and Dublin airports while several departing flights, including Ryanair’s Manchester service and Aer Lingus’s London Heathrow service, were also cancelled.


It’s understood holding aircraft will begin landing again shortly and aircraft that diverted to other airports have begun to reposition to Shannon.
