Shannon

Shannon airport
[SNN/EINN]

Shannon Airport (Irish: Aerfort na Sionainne) is an international airport located in County Clare in the Republic of Ireland. The airport has a history of pioneering in global aviation with the first transatlantic proving flight in 1945.

In the late 1930s, transatlantic air traffic was dominated by flying boats, and a flying boat terminal was located at Foynes on the south side of the Shannon Estuary.

In 1936, the Government of Ireland confirmed that it would develop a 3.1-square-kilometre site at Rineanna for the country's first transatlantic airport. The land on which the airport was to be built was boggy, and in 1936 work began to drain the land. In July 1939, a SABENA Savoia-Marchetti S.73 from Brussels via Croydon Airport was the first commercial flight to use the Rineanna airfield.

By 1942 a serviceable airport had been established and was named Shannon Airport. BOAC began scheduled service to Bristol on 21 February 1942, to provide a land plane connection between England and the flying boat terminal at Foynes. Aer Lingus began scheduled service to Dublin in August 1942.
