Hi, I’m from Shannon. Some good locations but you’ll definitely need a car. The first location is in the Industrial estate. Route is marked in red, doesn’t show up on sat nav as it’s in th IND Estate. it’s a car-park right beside the CHC hangar which is near Atlantic Aviation hangar. There’s a wall to stand on and you can also snap from the fence if you have a ladder(wide lens recommended as aircraft are quite close). Area marked X used to be an area where you could snap some stored aircraft however it’s now redundant as there’s a new hangar being built. Second picture shows the route to the “official” spotter area. You can find this by typing “Lufthansa Technik Shannon” into the sat nav..once you arrive turn left down a one way road. Make sure you don’t type “Lufthansa Technik Shannon Turbine” as those are offices in Shannon Town. Hope this helps!

Aer Lingus have closed their Shannon base for Permanent. With up to 80 crew affected by this decision.


At Shannon, 81 cabin crew who work from the base will be offered enhanced severance or to transfer to the airline's Dublin Int'l hub, while a further 45 ground staff in Shannon will be laid off.

[…]The Irish Airline Pilots Association, which represents more than 1,200 pilots at carriers such as Aer Lingus and Ryanair (FR, Dublin Int'l), said the layoffs were a direct result of government policy “and its continued inaction on aviation,” describing Ireland as an “outlier” in the European Union with “the most restrictive travel regime” yet all the while ignoring the plight of aviation and its workers.
