Shannon Airport remains fully operational this morning with airport staff working through last night in challenging conditions to keep the runway operational.

Services are operating normally, with the airport’s first flights to Stansted and Heathrow departing on time. The inbound Aer Lingus Boston flight landed on time, while the Norwegian, Newburgh flight is expected to arrive at 10.20am.

The inbound and outbound Shannon service to Edinburgh (EI3675/72) has been cancelled.

The airport handled 20 flight diversions from Dublin and Cork from 04.20 yesterday morning until midnight last night.

An airport spokeswoman said: “We are currently managing weather challenges and will continue to monitor the evolving conditions over the coming days. We have a 24 hour team in place at airport to minimise the expected severe weather conditions later today from Storm Emma. We are advising passengers intending to fly from, or travel to, Shannon Airport to contact their relevant airline or look at their website before travelling.
