Shannon Airport, Dinner Menu, 1947
Shannon Airport began service in 1942 and by the end of 1945 its runways were extended to allow transatlantic flights to take off. The airport has a history of pioneering in global aviation with the first transatlantic proving flight in 1945, the world's first duty-free airport opening in 1947, and Europe's first US pre-clearance facility opening in 1986.
It was a busy refuelling stop for many international carriers in the 1960s, making it a gateway between Europe and the Americas. At 3,199 metres (10,495 ft), Shannon has the longest runway in Ireland, which allowed it to be a designated alternative landing site for the Space Shuttle.
