NOC opened its doors in 1985 and offered three charter flights to Rome. The airport was the result of a long fight by Monsignor James Horan who wanted to bring visitors to the Knock Shrine. Because the fight for the airport was so public, it inspired a musical, On a Wing and a Prayer. The site was considered too foggy and too boggy for an airport. By 1988, 100,000-plus passengers went through its doors, and in 2006, it was voted the Best Regional Airport in the Republic of Ireland. Plans to upgrade the terminal, repave the runway and add more parking places went into effect in 2017.
