I take it this is the key data you want us to see. In fairness, its really only showing us what we know already â€“ Shannon notionally serves 3.3 million passengers, but that shrinks to slightly less than Cork once we pull out the transatlantic hijack victims.
They have attracted an amount of Ryanair business, which they hardly needed a new transatlantic passenger terminal for, any more than they need air bridges to operate a freight hub. It illustrates how Shannon’s history is based on politics triumphing over reason.
The freight idea sounds like wishful thinking. Why in particular would Shannon be chosen for that purpose? The only reason for freight to gravitate there is because it has a long runway that few want to use. Iâ€™m not confident thatâ€™s enough.
