SHANNON AIRPORT: There are times when I can’t get my head around what goes on in this country. Right now it looks as if the  south west of Ireland is going to lose it’s airport. My God what are we at. Shannon was the airport with so many firsts, the first transatlantic flights to Ireland landed in Shannon in the early 1940’s. In 1947, the “Customs Free Airport Act” established Shannon as the world’s first duty-free airport. Shannon introduced United States border preclearance in 1986, allowing departing passengers to the US to complete US entry procedures at Shannon. These services were extended to cover private aircraft in 2010, making Shannon the first airport in the world to offer US border preclearance for private aircraft. In 2012 Shannon separated from the Dublin Airport Authority and became a publicly owned commercial airport. Passenger traffic has declined year on year since (forget about 2020). It is now a ghost airport and successive governments have allowed this  to happen. Our politicians have a lot to answer for. To me it smacks of “Dublin is Ireland”.
