I’ve always thought the approach taken by euro airport authorities to building air hubs might be a bit amiss.

Their approach is to base air hubs in some of the busiest airports serving some of the biggest cities in Europe (Heathrow – London, Frankfurt etc.) which means much or most of the capacity is going to/coming from the nearby population centre.

Surely, a better approach is to build an air hub at an airport with no large population centre to ‘hog’ the capacity? Shannon would be ideally suited to this role, both in terms of being low to medium traffic and in its geographical location.
