New US pre-clearance deal opens up Shannon to private jet owners

first_imgNewsBusinessNew US pre-clearance deal opens up Shannon to private jet ownersBy Staff Reporter – March 13, 2019 1108 The US pre-clearance facility at Shannon Airport.SHANNON airport could soon become a stopping off point for some of the world’s richest and most influential jet-setters.Following the extension of the US customs and immigration pre-clearance agreement with the Irish Government this week, airport management said that the deal would allow them to market Shannon’s advantages as a transit stop for owners of private jets.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Currently, Shannon and Dublin are the only pre-clearance locations in Europe, with 1.9 million passengers availing of the service last year. In 2010 Shannon became the first airport in the World to offer private air crafts the same unique service.Shannon Airport managing director Andrew Murphy said that the US pre-clearance facilities would allow the airport to enhance services to airline customers and business jet operators.“This new agreement will extend the hours from 9am to 5pm daily and offer an out of hours service, which is something our executive jet customers have requested.“Our executive jet customers, in particular, can see the time-saving benefits that this new agreement will offer. It will allow them to fly directly from Shannon to their home airport without having to go to a designated clearance airport in the US first,” Mr Murphy explained.The agreement was approved by Government last January, and the signing represents the next step in assuring enhanced services at the US Pre-clearance facilities at Dublin and Shannon Airports.According to Transport Minister Shane Ross, the new provisions reflect agreements reached between Irish and US officials following detailed negotiations. The Agreement will now be referred to the Dáil for final approval before entry into force.“My Department has been engaging with the US since 2015 on the need to enhance and expand services and introduce flexibilities to pre-clearance in Ireland. The US has also been working for a number of years to expand the programme to other countries, where it is intended that a reimbursement framework for all services and facilities will be the norm as it has become in many US domestic airports.“The amendments allow reimbursement by the airport authorities of the costs of additional and enhanced pre-clearance services in Irish airports with US authorities continuing to fund a baseline level of service, on a par with that which is offered at present.“The additional costs will be borne by those benefitting from the enhanced services and will not be a charge on the Exchequer,” Minister Ross explained.The revised arrangements also reflect the agreement reached on a number of other issues, including merchandise compliance agreements, the designation of pre-clearance areas and new signage to be placed in pre-clearance areas”.From a US perspective, the new agreement enhances their Customs and Border Protection strategy of addressing continually evolving security threats “by allowing them work with foreign law enforcement and commercial carriers to prevent the boarding of potentially high-risk travellers while providing unique facilitation benefits”.According to a US Embassy spokesman, it will also allow for continued expansion of pre-clearance services in Dublin and Shannon, including extended service hours and increased staffing, cost recovery, and improved officer safety measures.by Miranda [email protected] Advertisement Previous articleLife is a Cabaret for Miss LavelleNext articleSocial enterprises given a voice at BNest Showcase Day Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp Twittercenter_img Linkedin Email Facebook Printlast_img read more

History and development of major sporting events

first_imgCommon wealth Games The Commonwealth Games were first held in Hamilton, Canada. It was borne from an idea in 1891, that the Games would be a good way to bring the countries of the British Empire together in a friendly competition. Thus it is also known as the ‘Friendly Games’. The Games are held every four years in between the Summer Olympics and include some sports that are mainly played in Commonwealth countries such as netball and rugby. CARIFTA Games In 1972, Austin Sealy, then president of the Amateur Athletic Association of Barbados, inaugurated the CARIFTA Games to mark the transition from the Caribbean Free Trade Association (CARIFTA) to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). CARIFTA was meant to enhance relations between the English-speaking countries of the Caribbean after the dissolution of the West Indies Federation, but the CARIFTA Games took that idea a step further, including the French and Dutch Antilles in an annual junior field championship meet. The meet is held yearly and normally runs over three days during the Easter period and includes over 150 separate events. The Games has two age categories for boys and girls: under-17 and under-20. Pan American Games The Pan American Games (also known colloquially as the Pan Am Games) is a major sporting event in the Americas featuring summer sports, in which thousands of athletes participate in a variety of competitions. The competition is held among athletes from nations of the Americas. The first Pan American Games were held in Buenos Aires in 1951. This is held every four years, before the Summer Olympic Games and is open to all countries in the Americas whose Olympic Committee is recognised by the Pan Americas Sport Association (PASO). This currently includes 42 nations from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. PASO is responsible for choosing the host city for each Pan American Games and the program, consisting of the sports to be contested at the Games, is determined by PASO. Paralympics The Paralympics is a major international multi-sport event, involving athletes with a range of physical disabilities, including impaired muscle power, impaired passive range of movement, limb deficiency, leg length difference, short stature, hypertonia, ataxia, athetosis, vision impairment and intellectual impairment. There are Winter and Summer Paralympic Games, which since the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, South Korea, are held almost immediately following the respective Olympic Games. All Paralympic Games are governed by the International Paralympic Committee. This competition was borne from the idea of Dr. Ludwig Guttmann, who first organised wheelchair games at stoke Mandeville Hospital in England for injured veterans of the Second World War. The games were intended to help rehabilitate the disabled soldiers. Special Olympics The Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organisation for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and provides opportunities for them to train and take part in Olympic-styled events. The Special Olympics was founded in the 1950’s as a summer camp by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who felt that intellectually disabled people were treated unfairly. Special Olympics World Games are held every two years. The most recent World Summer Games were the Special Olympics World Summer Games, held in Los Angeles, California from July 25, 2015 to August 2, 2015 and the most recent Special Olympics World Winter Games were held in Pyeongchang, South Korea from January 29 to February 5, 2013. World Cup The FIFA World Cup, often simply called the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men’s of the members of Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sports’ global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not held because of the Second World War. The current champions are Germany, who won their fourth title at the tournament in Brazil. The current format of the competition involves a qualification phase – which currently takes place over the preceding three years – to determine which teams qualify for the tournament phase, which is often called the World Cup Finals. A total of 32 teams, including the automatically qualifying host nation(s) and defending champions, compete in the tournament phase for the title at venues within the host nation(s) over a period of about a month.last_img read more
