Shannon Airport recorded its busiest day in seven years over the June Bank Holiday weekend.

A record breaking 7,800 passengers travelled through the airport on Friday the 2nd of June, marking the highest number of passengers to traverse Shannon Airport in one day since 2016.

The busy day was driven by the airport’s strong transatlantic performance and an expanded range of UK and European services across 48 flights to and from 18 destinations to seven countries.

Last month (May 2023) the airport experienced a significant up lift in passenger traffic of 27% compared to the same period in 2022.

Commenting on the figures, CEO of The Shannon Airport Group Mary Considine said, “We are continuing to see an increase in the volume of passengers through Shannon since the start of the year. There is a real appetite for overseas travel, especially as we reach peak holiday season.

“The boost in numbers coincides with our new United Airlines Chicago service and the return of Ryanair’s seasonal services to Corfu and Barcelona-Girona over the Bank Holiday weekend.

“This summer we are providing a gateway for thousands of passengers to 33 destinations across 11 countries in the UK, USA, and Europe. We have taken comprehensive measures, including our hi-tech security screening system, to ensure a relaxed and hassle-free travel experience, and the fruit of our labour is evident on record breaking days like last Friday.”
