Ryanair has opened its first aircraft heavy maintenance facility in Ireland at Shannon Airport on May 18, delivering an investment of €10 million (£8.5 million) and creating 200 high-skill jobs in the locality, including licensed engineers, mechanics and support staff.

The state-of-the-art three-bay facility, leased from Shannon Group, (5,220 m2) will support the maintenance of Ryanair’s fleet as it grows to 600 aircraft by 2026. This investment resounds Ryanair’s commitment to the mid-west region and Ireland as a whole as it further drives post-pandemic recovery through connectivity, inbound tourism and employment. Ryanair has operated from Shannon Airport since 1986, opening its base at the south-western airport in 2005 and carrying over 17 million customers to/from the airport to date.
