IT WON’T be just witches on broomsticks taking to the skies this Halloween as Shannon Airport is hoping to break its own spooky season record, with more than 44,000 passengers expected to pass through this October Bank Holiday.

And, to help the holiday season truly take off, an extra 200 flights have been scheduled at the airport across the Halloween, Christmas, and Easter periods.

“Our recovery to date has been consistently strong and we are seeing this with a record-breaking number of passengers expected this Halloween break.”

“Not only are more people travelling this October Bank Holiday when compared to last year,  we are also up by 23 per cent in passenger traffic for the same period in 2019,” said Shannon Airport Group CEO Mary Considine.
