Airport Facts

Shannon Airport (IATA: SNN, ICAO: EINN) is Ireland's main transatlantic airport. Situated in County Clare in the mid-west of Ireland, just 15km from Limerick City, the airport is operated by Dublin Airport Authority. This company also administers Dublin Airport and Cork International Airport. Shannon Airport mostly handles transatlantic flights and flights to Britain. Shannon and Dublin are the only two European airports with U.S. border preclearance facilities.

Ground Transportation Regular bus services connect the airport to Limerick, Ennis and Galway. Like all airports in Ireland, Shannon currently has no rail connection. However there are early discussions of a private €60m project to connect the airport to the Limerick-Ennis line, a distance of 10km. [3]

Airlines using Shannon SNN is one of the hubs of Irish international and domestic airline Aer Lingus, which is also one of five companies providing aircraft maintenance at the airport. Shannon is also one of the hubs of Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair. The airport can handle landings by aeroplanes of all sizes.

The "Shannon Stopover" The United States - Ireland bilateral or Air Services Agreement requires that air carriers operating between the United States and Ireland must provide capacity into Dublin Airport and Shannon. The rule came from the days when aircraft did not have a long range and were forced to stop at Shannon. The rule used to require a stop in both directions but was relaxed to require one direct Shannon flight for each direct Dublin flight. Accordingly some services are operated US-Dublin-Shannon-US. A similar bilateral rule exists between Ireland and Canada. There are exceptions for some charter services.
