Shannon Group Calls For Funding Programme To Safeguard Post-Brexit EU Connections

Shannon Group is calling on the Government to support it in safeguarding EU connectivity in the aftermath of Brexit.

Shannon’s main hub, and its busiest route, is London Heathrow, but the airport says the West of Ireland is facing a situation where it will be without connectivity with an EU hub after Brexit next March.

It’s seeking a connectivity funding programme to secure strategic routes, as well as increased targets to get more visitors into the regions.


CEO of Shannon Group Matthew Thomas says it’s vital to ensure that we’re still connected to the European Union.
