With the Easter season only a hop away, egg-cited staff at Shannon Airport are expecting a busy Easter season as they prepare to welcome over 50,000 passengers through their doors from next week. This is an 86% return on passenger numbers over the same period in 2019.
The Canary Islands, Spanish coastal resorts and Malta are among the most popular sunshine destinations this Easter for passengers in search of sunshine.
Similar to passenger traffic at Shannon over St Patrick’s holiday period, Easter traffic will see the largest number of passengers for that period in over three years.
The airport recently launched its Summer 2022 schedule which offers 26 destinations in 11 countries, with 108 weekly frequencies to the US, UK and Europe.
Shannon Group CEO Mary Considine said: “Traditionally the Easter break kick-starts the summer season to our popular destinations such as London, New York, Boston, Alicante, Barcelona, Palma Mallorca, and our latest service to Malta. This year, the Easter break is even more special for a lot of our passengers, as they jet off on a well-deserved holiday, some for the first time since the easing of travel restrictions. It is fantastic to see families and friends excitedly travelling overseas for a sun or city break, or to finally visit loved ones.“
“We have worked hard to bring these services to our passengers and are focused on rebuilding and further growing our connectivity, broadening the options available for our passengers. Facilities such as our US Preclearance and the airport sensory room, along with the short distance from our car parks to the terminal building, compliments our latest investment in high-tech security screening, and ensures the journey through Shannon Airport is as easy and hassle-free as possible.”
Passengers descending upon the airport for their Easter getaway will experience Shannon’s new multimillion-euro passenger screening system, which eliminates the 100 ml rule, thus halving the dwell time through airport security.
