Shannon Airport can confirm that a special VIP from the North Pole is set to take to the skies with over 2,000 children and their parents for the Shannon Airport Santa Flights.

 

In its seventh year, the highly popular Christmas event gives children from across the country a chance to take flight on a 737 aircraft with Santa Claus. Mr Claus and his elves will take off from Shannon Airport, flying 15,000 ft above the west coast of Ireland, on Saturday 30th Nov and Sunday 1st Dec in what has become one of Ireland’s best-loved Santa experiences. Tickets for this unique and magical lottery CLOSED on 1st Nov 19 at midnight with lucky winners notified on 6th Nov 19.

 

The build-up to the Santa flights will take off from the minute the very special passengers enter the airport and spirits will be soaring for children and parents as they embark on a truly festive journey. Not only will Mrs Claus and Santa’s little helpers be manning the airport check-in desks, but the event will also be supported by teams of staff volunteers from Shannon Airport. And while lucky ticket holders wait to board the most magical flight of the year, there will be a packed programme of entertainment in the airport’s transit lounge, from dancing elves, roof-raising music, festive treats and games.

 

All profits raised in aid of charities, Limerick Suicide Watch and Irish Cancer Society. This is one of a number of events organised by the Shannon Group charity committee and since its establishment in 2014, Shannon Group staff have raised over €278,000 for charity. Isabel Harrison, Chairperson of the Shannon Group charity committee said: “Each year we are delighted with the high volume of applications, they are like Willie Wonka’s golden tickets! It is wonderful to be part of such a popular and fun-filled event, whilst raising much-needed funds for our very worthy charities”.
