Shannon Airport staff worked throughout the night to assist airlines clear a backlog of flights delayed by Ophelia. A slow improvement in weather conditions from yesterday afternoon meant that delayed flights could began to resume.

By 3.00am this morning all flights including six diversions due into Dublin from Nice, Rome, Madrid, Faro, Palma and Bari, had departed Shannon Airport. A Delta flight diverted to Dublin yesterday morning due to the severe weather conditions, will now resume its journey from Shannon to New York JKF at 9.30am this morning.

The airport is expecting to operate a normal schedule today but would continue to advise intending passengers to check with their airlines.

Have water, flashlights non perishable food and keep your children and pets with you. When the middle of the storm (the eye) it wil become calm and clear. Don't think it is over, it will come around and hit you even harder. Please stay as safe as you can.

Niamh Tobin - Shannon International Airport is a fantastic airport. The longest runway in Ireland, at 3,199 metres (10,495 ft), is located at Shannon. It was a designated landing site for the Space Shuttle. A little known fact but very important regarding the birth of Shannon Airport is that the famous American aviator Colonel Charles E. Lindbergh was in Europe as an agent of the U.S. airline Pan Am surveying locations to establish an Atlantic gateway into Europe from America. In December 1936 Lindbergh flew over the site in his Miles Mohawk and later walked over part of the area with Minister for Defence, Frank Aiken, and officials from the Departments of Industry and Commerce, Defence and the Board of Works. Great satisfaction was expressed concerning the suitability of the site. On Thursday the 18th May 1939 the first aircraft landed at Shannon Airport(Rineanna), the aircraft was the Irish Air Corps Aero Anson A43.
