We opened our doors at Shannon in 1945 and have continually grown and developed over the years. And since that first day back in the 1940’s, we have worked hard to make air travel easy for people living in the Shannon region, from along the west coast and indeed for those throughout Ireland who prefer a more relaxed airport experience.
With that in mind, we never close, operating 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
Ireland’s longest runway, combined with 24 hour unrestricted operations with no slots or curfews, delivers unrivalled benefits to our customers. Here you can find out more about Operations at Shannon Airport including airport charges, maintenance operators, airside access, crew training, ground handling and more. The Shannon Airport Group lead the way towards a brighter future for our passengers, our employees and our communities.
