Ireland greets charters.

tmb aidan larkinIn September 1947 the first Trans-Canada Air Lines North Star noisily rumbled to a halt at stand #3 of Shannon Airport, marking the inauguration of TCA's passenger service between Canada and Ireland. Between November 1979 and May 1984, cargo flights kept the Air Canada flag flying during the temporary suspension of passenger flights.

Aidan Larkin, Airport Manager, Shannon, met that first TCA flight, he was then a young Passenger Agent with the handling agent, Aer Lingus. He joined TCA in August 1952 as a Ramp Agent and was promoted Airport Manager in 1967. On May 5, Larkin was again on hand as Air Canada's inaugural B747 charter from Toronto pulled up to stand #3, 37 years later.
