Shannon Airport prepares for soaring Christmas passenger numbers as over 121,000 passengers expected over the festive season

#Traveltradetogether

Busiest Christmas at Shannon Airport in 14 years.

Shannon Airport is gearing up for a busy Christmas with passenger numbers expected to soar over the festive season. Over 121,000 passengers are expected to be welcomed at the airport during the Christmas holiday period, an 18% surge when compared to the same period last year which saw 75,000 travelling through the airport.

This year will be the busiest Christmas period at the airport in fourteen years, with the highest number of passengers to travel through the airport at Christmas since 2009. The rise in passenger numbers reflects the growing popularity of Shannon Airport’s services.

CEO of The Shannon Airport Group, Mary Considine said; “Witnessing passengers return home to loved ones or embark on journeys to reunite with family abroad is truly heartening. Ensuring a seamless and enjoyable journey for everyone during this festive season remains one of our top priorities.

“Our team is on hand to welcome all those travelling through the airport while ensuring that Shannon Airport provides an easy and enjoyable experience this festive season.

“As we look towards the new year, we are delighted to offer 35 routes from Shannon Airport for 2024, among these our new daily seasonal service to New York – JFK with Delta Air Lines starting in May ‘24.

“On behalf of all our team, I would like to wish all our passengers a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year.”

Airport staff are fully prepared to extend the renowned warm Shannon welcome to visitors from across the globe during the Christmas season. The airport terminal building has been adorned with festive decorations, including a magnificent 12-foot Christmas tree in the airport arrivals hall and a life-size Santa sleigh for visitors to enjoy and capture memorable moments.
