Shannon Airport remains open during Hurricane Ophelia

Shannon Airport will remain open throughout Monday, despite the potential impact of Hurricane Ophelia.

A Shannon Airport spokeswoman stressed the safety of passengers and staff is its first priority.

The spokesperson asked passengers to contact their airline with regard to updates on schedule changes for Monday.

However, at this point the airport is aware of the following flight cancellations: Aer Lingus Regional EI3675/3672 from and to Edinburgh and EI 3639/3638 from and to Birmingham, and London/Heathrow EI381 and EI384 with Aer Lingus.

Delta flight DL406 from NY JFK has been diverted to Dublin Airport.

“Airlines will continue to advise passengers of schedule changes and we advise intending passengers to check the status of their flight with their airline before travelling to the airport tomorrow.  Shannon Airport will continue monitoring the situation throughout the day and live flight information is available on www.shannonairport.ie or on the Shannon Airport App.

“Shannon Airport will post airport operational updates tomorrow on its social media channels – Twitter and Facebook as staff become aware of them but, again, the airport would encourage passengers to check with their airline,” said a Shannon Airport spokeswoman.
