Shannon Airport has had a long and distinguished history since its original designation as the transatlantic gateway between Europe and America. It has been through good times and bad, but always the resilience and determination to fight back has delivered new eras of growth and prosperity.
As the global recession deepened, the period 2009 to 2012 was not kind to Shannon which saw passenger numbers drop by over 50%. But in 2013 Shannon achieved a long held ambition when it was granted its independence from the DAA and brought together with the Shannon Development company.
ITIC recently spoke to Neil Pakey, CEO of the Shannon Airport Authority, about the very ambitious targets set for the new Shannon Group. Click on the image below to hear what he had to say.
