Shannon Airport Group has welcomed announcement by the Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Jack Chambers TD., of €7.1 million in funding for Shannon Airport under the Regional Airports Programme.The mid-term review of the Regional Airports Programme, which is nearing completion, is looking at how the Programme is delivering on its objectives of supporting balanced regional development and how international connectivity and services, to and from the regions can be maintained and enhanced.

Mary Considine, CEO of The Shannon Airport Group, commented: “We warmly welcome Minister Chamber’s announcement of €7.1 million Government funding under the Regional Airports Programme. It demonstrates the Government's commitment to supporting the region’s connectivity and the broader economic benefits this brings to the region. This funding supported some of the vital safety and security operational costs of running Shannon Airport during 2023. 

The inclusion of Shannon Airport in the Regional Airports Programme over the past few years has been invaluable in supporting our efforts to grow air connectivity, which is so vital for the business and leisure industries across the West of Ireland. We are proud of what we have been able to achieve so far. We know that if Shannon Airport were included permanently in the Regional Airports Programme, we can achieve even more for the people of our region while supporting the Government’s ambition to achieve balanced regional development.”
