Later in the 1930', airplanes predominated in trans-atlantic aviation, and Foynes, on the southern side of the Shannon estuary, had a pilot station. But it was recognised that the change of technologies would necessitate a continuous airstrip and an aiport. The Irish government in 1936 affirmed that it would be developing a 3.1 square kilometer site in Rineanna for the country's first ever trans-atlantic aerodrome.
Construction of the terminal was to take place on a swampy site, and on 8 October 1936 work began on the drainage of the area. Until 1942 a usable airfield was set up, which received the name Shannon Airfield. Until 1945, the Shannon runway was expanded to allow on shore trans-atlantic services.
After the Second World War the airport was prepared for use by the many new post-war airlines in Europe and North America. September 16, 1945, the first trans-atlantic test mission, a Pan Am DC-4, arrived in Shannon from Gander. On 24 October 1945 the first regular service, an American Overseas Airlines DC-4, flagship New England, made a stop at the New York City-Gander-Shannon-London area.
A September 10, 1961 incident with President Airlines claimed 83 human life. Douglas DC-6 plunged into the River Shannon while she left Shannon Airport for Gander. Shannon became known as the gate between Europe and America, and the restricted reach of the planes made a refueling stop necessary for many trips.
And Shannon became the most comfortable stop before and after a journey across the Atlantic. In addition, during the Cold War many Soviet Union transit Atlantic departures halted here for refuelling, as Shannon was the most western non-NATO airfield on the Atlantic's western side. Shannon was the site of the "Circle Over Shannon" on September 30, 1994 following a military affair with Boris Yeltsin.
At Ryanair we have raised the number of flights and air travelers at the airports until 2008. Shannon transported 3.2 million people in 2007. Following a dispute with the Dublin Airports Authority (DAA) in 2008, however, Ryanair said that the number of stationary planes would be reduced from four to one and 150 job losses would occur.
Flight connections were scaled back by 75% and 32 Ryanair lines from the airports were scaled back to eight. In 2008, CityJet took off on a twice a day flight to Charles de Gaulle Paris when Aer Lingus stopped flying to London Heathrow. has an Avro RJ85 stationed in Shannon. Further service was considered, among which a connection to London City International and London International airports, but CityJet withdrew from Shannon in October 2009 after Aer Lingus resumed operations at Heathrow.
Shannon International will divest itself of the Dublin Air Authority, which still owns Dublin and Cork airfields, in December 2012. At 23:59 on 31 December 2012, Shannon became a public passenger terminal and is now managed and run by Shannon Authority plc.
Ryanair on 21 March 2013 launched a new twice-weekly flight to Alicante, Spain, starting on 5 June for the spring time. Shannon's overall number was 33 seasonally planned summers. During August 2013 Aer Lingus booked a 1xweek flight to Lanzarote every Saturday during the cold season with an Airbus A320. Lingus will be flying to Lanzarote once a week.
United Airlines in October 2013 confirms that it will boost 88% of its 2014 Shannon-Chicago service by 2014. At the end of 2013 Aer Lingus introduced two new services to Malaga, Spain (two weekly) and Bristol, UK (one daily). And Ryanair also introduced 8 new services from Shannon to mainland Europe. A second Boeing 737-800 was stationed in Shannon to carry the additional 300,000 additional annual passenger movements.
Promised goals were Berlin Schonefeld, Beauvais, Memmingen, Warsaw Modlin, Krakow, Nice, Faro and Fuerteventura. At the end of 2014, the regional Aer Lingus carrier, Stobart Air, said it would shut down its Shannon facility in early 2015. In June 2015 they flew back to Birmingham with 6 departures per week, followed by 6 departures per week to Edinburgh.
At the end of 2015, they announce a new Shannon Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Thomas. As Ryanair said, it will discontinue its Paris and Memmingen services at the end of 2016 and reduce its Manchester and London Stansted services. In the summer of 2017, Ryanair is targeting 720,000 passenger movements, although they were almost 800,000 in the summer of 2016.
From October 2016, SAS introduced a new itinerary to Stockholm from 1 August 2017 to 7 October 2017. Soon thereafter Lufthansa announces a 2017 flight to Frankfurt from April to October. Ryanair introduced a new itinerary to Reus in September 2017. On the same date, Air Canada heralded a new 4x a week flight to Toronto with the Boeing 737 MAX.
Ryanair in February 2018 announces that it will be resuming services to Bristol and Liverpool in May 2018. 1969 it was declared that a new governing body, Aer Rianta (now Dublin Authority ), would take charge of Shannon International Airports. The number of passengers at the airports was 460,000 this year. In the 90s the airfield started to fight.
Negotiations on the US-B bilaterals have been re-negotiated to reduce the number of aircraft needed for a stopover in Shannon (see Shannon Stopover below). In 1996, Continental Airlines began operating flights between Dublin, Shannon and Newark, New Jersey. At the end of the 90s Shannon began to recover with the prosperity of the Ireland business community, the improvement in Northern Ireland and an arrival of US tourism.
Shannon had 2.2 million passengers by the end of the century and a new 40 million pound expansion was opened in 2000. During the years of the Celtic Tiger, Shannon expanded further with many departures to the USA and Canada. In 1945, the first air traffic agreement with the United States allowed only Shannon to be served and only Ireland, Boston, Chicago and New York to be served.
The US Civil Aeronautics Board in 1971 reported that it had suggested banning Aer Lingus from landings in New York when US aircraft were not permitted at Dublin Airport. Finally, an arrangement was concluded allowing a US airline, TWA, to fly to Dublin Airport via Shannon. The 1990 US-Ireland Memorandum of Understanding was amended to allow Ireland airlines to enable Los Angeles and other US airlines to fly to Dublin via Shannon.
A change in 1993 permitted airlines to offer non-stop Atlantic routes to Dublin, but 50 per cent of Atlantic routes must either have originated in Shannon or stop there. From November 2006 to April 2008, the Memorandum of Understanding progressively lifted freight transport limitations. Concerning passengers, it lowered the obligation to make a stopover and enabled Ireland's airlines to operate to three further US cities.
It was also decided that at the end of this transitional phase there would be no restriction on regular traffic between an airport located in one Member State and an airfield located in the other. The European Union and the USA in 2007 announce that an Open Sky air transport deal has been achieved.
This contract entered into force on 30 March 2008. In fact, this resulted in the total elimination of the Shannon stopover, although this would have been done under the 2005 Accord anyway. The Shannon International Airfield has a long tradition of overseas use. Much of the activity in recent years has been via stop-overs, almost all US, but the aerodrome was also often used by the Soviets until the 90s because Ireland, which has a tradition of pursuing neutral policies, was not a member of NATO.
However, there were some limitations, such as being non-armed, not bearing weapons, munitions or explosive material, and that the flight was not part of combat training or operation. For Shannon, the Cold War and the First Gulf War were periods of transport. Following the September 11 terrorist attack, the Ireland authorities proposed that the US use Shannon.
In 2003, when the United States marched into Iraq, the US military was still permitted to use the US military base at the time. A group called Pitstop Ploughshares in February 2003 crashed a United States Navy C-40 Clipper plane at the Ploughsharesport. By November 2008, approximately 1. 2 million force person oversubscribed by Shannon since the happening of the Iraq war.
This has resulted in significant revenues for the aerodrome, offsetting the lost air travel following the Shannon stop and the general decline in the overall aerospace world. During the period 2012-2013, the Omni Air International air defence contract will be operated by Boeing 767 and 777 aircraft,Sun Country Airlines by 737-800 and North American Airlines by Boeing 757.

The Shannon Airport is the final stop of the N19 domestic itinerary, which is connected to the N18/M18 Limerick-Ennis-Galway. In 2004, a two-lane section of the N19 was constructed circumventing the city of Shannon, and a new junction and two-lane road just off Ennis were constructed on the N18 (M18) in 2007.

The multi-storey cars are in operation 24h a day and are monitored on a regular basis by the police.
Because of Shannon's position, it gets a large number of distress stops. June 18, 1946 - An Aer Lingus Douglas DC-3, Charlie Alpha, on a ground plane from Rineanna to Dublin crashes soon after take-off, with only slight injury reports. September 5, 1954 - Lockheed Super Constellation KLM Flug 633 from Amsterdam to New York City, with Shannon as its refueling stop, fell into a mud bank next to the airfield just after take-off.
July 15, 1956 - A Swissair Convair CV-440-11 crash occurred during its landing at the airfield due to a piloting mistake. It was on its way from San Diego, California, via New York, Gander and Shannon to Zurich. August 14, 1958 - Lockheed Super Constellation KLM Flug 607-E from Amsterdam to New York plunged into the Atlantic after a refueling stop in Shannon and killed all 99 aboarders.
February 26, 1960 - An Alitalia Douglas DC-7C crash after takeoff from the airfield killed 34 of the 52 occupants and crews on the plane. September 10, 1961 - A President Airlines Douglas DC-6 rushed into the Shannon after taking off from the Shannon International Airfield for a plane to Canada.
