Address: Shannon, County Clare, Ireland
IATA Airport Code: SNN
ICAO airport code: EINN
Alias: Shannon International Airport
With a small decrease in arrivals in 2019 due to Brexit and the problems with the 737 MAX plane, connections to London remain extremely popular. Shannon Airport arrivals in the U.S. are maintained. There is a shift from Boston to New York – JFK. The other arrivals are mainly from Ryanair’s holiday flights from Spain with Malaga, Lanzarote and Alicante.
Shannon Airport is located in the west of the country on the “River Shannon”, Ireland’s longest river after which the airport is named. Construction of Shannon began in the 1960s to create a place to live for airport employees. Travelers do not therefore fly to this airport to visit Shannon, rather to visit the cities of Limerick, Ennis, Galway and Cork. Shannon Airport can be reached by road via the N19, which connects to the roads M18 (north) and N18 (direction Limerick).
