“We are dedicated to our mission of ‘making it easy’ for every customer. The unrivalled levels of customer service that we are able to achieve and maintain is a testament to our staff, who go above and beyond every day to ensure each person that passes through the airport can have a seamless and enjoyable experience. Whether it’s making it easy to get from the car park to the departure gate as quickly and smoothly as possible, to keeping the airport operational in sub-zero and severe storm conditions and raising more than €420,000 for charity over the past ten years, it is part of the unique DNA of our staff to go the extra mile and we are truly grateful for this commitment.”

Chris O’Donovan, HR Director at The Shannon Airport Group, added: “The long service recognition events are all about celebrating, appreciating and reflecting on the significant contribution of our staff. We understand that our people are the cornerstone of our success, and we take great pride in nurturing their growth and development throughout their journey with us.”

Recalling some memorable moments from over thirty years working in various roles across The Shannon Airport Group, Pamela Brooks, Head of Operations concluded: “Over the past thirty years, I have had the pleasure of working in various roles across The Shannon Airport Group, most recently as the airport’s Head of Operations. No day is the same here and I wouldn’t have it any other way. From meeting world leaders and VIP’s to lending a helping hand to passengers, it is always a pleasure to meet our customers and assist them in any way we can.”

“For me, what sets Shannon Airport apart is its people. Customer care and ensuring a pleasant experience for every person that passes through the airport truly is the driving force of our staff and their energy and commitment is infectious. People are proud to be a part of this team and I believe our customers can also feel that which is why Shannon continues to thrive.”
