The Shannon Airport Santa Flights 2017 will take place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of December.
This year, we are asking you to enter a lottery to win seats for you and your family. The cost to enter the lottery for seats on board the Santa Flights is €1.00 per seat. You can bid for the total number of seats you and your family require, subject to a maximum of six seats.
If you are fortunate to win seats for your family, no other charge is applied for your seats on board Santa Flights 2017.
We will be donating all profits raised to the Shannon Group staff charities: Home Share Clare and Cahercalla Community Hospital & Hospice.
Lottery winners will be notified on 22nd November 2017.
On the day of the event, lottery seat winners will arrive to Shannon Airport 90 mins before departure and will be met by Mrs Claus and her elves. After check-in, you will join the chief elf and his helpers in the transit lounge where fun, games and treats await. Watch out for scrooge who will be checking if passengers are naughty or nice before boarding their flight!
Once boarded, Santa’s elves and the crew will make sure you are all safe before taking off into the Shannon skies. At 15,000ft Santa will make a mid-air ‘sleigh to wing transfer’ and join the girls and boys on board. After greeting all the little passengers, he will then head off on his sleigh and the pilot returns back to Shannon. Each flight is approx. 30 minutes long.
On arrival back to Shannon Airport, our young passengers will be met by another team in red – The Airport Fire Service. Passengers can explore the fire tender and meet the team.
On departure, each child will receive a small gift from Shannon Airport.
