Shannon Airport wins the prestigious Airport of the Year Award in Europe
A fantastic achievement.
Shannon Airport has been named as this year’s winner of the Airport of the Year Award from the European Regions Airline Association (ERA).
This is the third time that they've received the prestigious accolade, having won the title in 2014 and 2015. Previous winners of the award include London City, Budapest and Munich Airports.
Speaking on the win, Andrew Murphy, Managing Director of Shannon Airport, said: "Shannon Airport is delighted to have received this prestigious European accolade from the European Regions Airline Association (ERA).
"Our runway upgrade project, which was self-funded with the assistance of a commercial loan from ISIF, The Ireland Strategic Investment Fund, was completed last year ahead of time and under budget. It is part of an overall €40 million investment programme at Shannon Airport on a range of customer-focused projects."
He added: "We opened Europe’s first airport sensory room and delivered a suite of online supports for visitors who need special assistance at the airport setting a new standard for the global aviation industry to follow.
"We introduced new time-saving technology to reduce US pre-clearance security screening time and make our customers’ journey through the airport even quicker and easier."
The award is judged by a panel of leading experts that are comprised from people in the aviation industry, including past and present CEOs of European airlines and airport consultants.
Congratulations to those involved in the day-to-day operations at Shannon Airport.
