JUNE 30 | Super Shannon Flyout!

Super Shannon Flyout

Welcome to County Clare!

When you think of Ireland’s stunning moss covered cliffs, you’re probably picturing the ones lining the coast of County Clare, the westernmost part of Ireland. The cliffs have been there for thousands and thousands of years, but were shot into the limelight when they were prominently used as filming locations for the movie versions of Star Wars and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Shannon, the largest city in County Clare, serves as the gateway to these natural beauties. Perhaps even more famous than the city itself is the airport - Shannon International Airport. Its runways were critical to the expansion of Trans - Atlantic flight, providing a strategic place to refuel before hopping up to Iceland or Greenland for the next pit stop.


Shannon Airport (SNN)

Shannon Airport

Irish: Aerfort na Sionainne

Shannon Airport is an international airport located in County Clare in Ireland. It is adjacent to the Shannon Estuary and lies halfway between Ennis and Limerick. With over 1.5 million passengers in 2022, the airport is the third busiest airport in the Republic of Ireland, and the fifth busiest on the island.

The airport was built in the late 1930s, with the first commercial flight taking place in 1939. Shannon was the landing point for the first transatlantic proving flight in 1945 and became the world’s first duty-free airport in 1947. By the 1960s, it was a busy refuelling stop for many transatlantic carriers. Europe’s first United States border preclearance facility opened in 1986. At 3.2 kilometres (2 mi), Shannon has the longest runway in Ireland, which allowed it to be a designated alternative landing site for the Space Shuttle.

Fun Fact: The world’s first duty free shop was at Shannon Airport.
