Shannon nominated for global award

SHANNON Airport has been shortlisted for a prestigious global award.
It is one of five airports on the shortlist in the under four million passengers category at the World Routes Awards 2013, which will be held in Las Vegas next month.
The annual awards provide the airline community with a chance to reward the airports they feel provide the best overall marketing services to them.
The other finalists are airports in Australia, Russia, Tanzania and the Ukraine.
Shannon has added new routes to Chicago and Philadelphia this year and airport CEO Neil Pakey feels this is why it is being recognised. “It’s recognition of achievement in terms of route development and market development. I think what we’ve done in the US this year is why we’ve been shortlisted.”
Mr Pakey said he thinks the nomination will boost the Clare airport. “You get profile across the industry and when you meet the carriers they know about it and it all helps. It’s fantastic that we’ve even got to the shortlist.”
