“Shannon’s ability to become Ireland’s leading cargo hub base got a welcome boost today with the announcement that Turkish Airlines has selected Shannon for the first direct all-cargo flights to the US,” said Shannon Chamber CEO Helen Downes congratulating the airline for its decision and Shannon Airport for developing a successful business relationship with one of the fastest growing and most successful airline companies in the world.
“It speaks volumes for Shannon’s capability and is a welcome development for the business community not just in Shannon but throughout Ireland. Speed to market is of the essence for so many industry sectors today and the ability to now export direct to the US from Shannon bears testament to the ease of doing business in and from Shannon. Developments of this nature project the Shannon message to an extensive global audience and serve to act as an attractor for further investment. ”
