Shannon Chamber Welcomes Announcement that AerCap is to grow its Shannon Operation

Welcoming the recent government announcement that AerCap has created over 100 new jobs in Ireland, and intends to continue growing its operations in both Shannon and Dublin, a spokesperson for Shannon Chamber described this as most welcome news at a time when Shannon is positioning itself to play an even greater role in global aviation.


“Shannon has a well-established, world-class aerospace and aviation cluster, with over 45 companies operating in the sector. The fact that AerCap, a global leader in aircraft leasing, is boosting its activity at Shannon will act as a beacon for other global players seeking to expand operations in Europe. It will greatly assist the International Aviation Services Centre (IASC) in its endeavours to attract new aerospace and aviation activity to Shannon and to develop a strong cluster global brand for the sector.”
