Maintenance: Repair: Overhaul: MRO

A vision by Dr Tony Ryan saw a collaboration between Lufthansa, Swissair, and leasing giant GPA to give birth to a modern-day Third-party Maintenance Facility in Shannon. Since then, the sector has grown in number and depth of versatility, supported by Shannon Airports' continuous investment in facilities and infrastructure. It is also home to the national apprenticeship programme Aviation School where dozens of young engineers begin their careers in Aviation each year.
