Shannon Chamber sends heartiest congratulations to the seven member companies whose contributions to the aviation/aerospace sector was recognised at the recent Aviation Industry Awards 2019. This is a clear indication that Shannon is an important European aviation base with many world-leading MRO and global support companies located here, engaging in most aspects of the aerospace life cycle, including airframe and engine maintenance, parts manufacture, design, technical records, legal and part-out. The birthplace of the aircraft leasing industry, Shannon also hosts many of the world’s top 15 global leasing firms.
Shannon offers 24/7/365 unrestricted airport operating hours; the longest runway in Ireland (10,500ft/3,200m); and more hangar space than any other Irish airport. And, there is a lot more to come.
