Shannon Group has plans to upgrade its cargo facilities at Shannon Airport in Ireland.

The Group told Air Cargo News that its development, currently awaiting planning permission, is a “2,705 sq m distribution facility”.

This facility will be located on a three-acre development site and will incorporate an additional 335 sq m of office accommodation. This facility will provide direct landside/airside access, said a Shannon Group spokesperson.

“The upgrade of our cargo facilities is part of our overall plans to enhance the facilities Shannon has to offer to cargo operators using the airport,” added the spokesperson.

The distribution facility forms part of Shannon Group’s development strategy, which has seen the Group invest over €150m in property since 2014.

Over €5.3m in airfield rehabilitation works were recently completed at Shannon Airport. The rehabilitation works involved three separate areas of the airfield: the resurfacing of the executive jet and light aircraft park; the extension of a section the apron (which facilitates aircraft for the loading and unloading of cargo, passengers and for refuelling), and the resurfacing of the long-term aircraft parking area.
