Product Description

Shannon Airport began service in 1942 and by the end of 1945 its runways were extended to allow transatlantic flights to take off. The airport has a history of pioneering in global aviation with the first transatlantic proving flight in 1945, the world's first duty-free airport opening in 1947, and Europe's first preclearance & facility opening in 1986. It was a busy refueling stop for many international carriers in the 1960s, making it a gateway between Europe and the Americas.  At 3,199 metres (10,495 ft), Shannon has the longest runway in Ireland, which allowed it to be a designated alternative landing site for the Space Shuttle.
