Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Public Service Obligation
74. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport when he expects to make a decision on the public service obligation application to operate a route to Amsterdam Schipol Airport, made by Shannon Airport Group; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2056/23]
As previously advised to the Deputy, my Department is considering a request from Shannon Airport in relation to the establishment of a Public Service Obligation (PSO) route to provide EU Hub connectivity from Shannon Airport.
An assessment is currently being finalised by my Department, with a view to it being submitted to me for my consideration in the coming weeks.
