How Can I Apply for the Santa Flights?
With demand for seats far outweighing availability, there is a lottery system in place for tickets. A €1.50 per seat application fee will apply to enter this year’s lottery, and if you win the lottery no other charges will apply.
It’s important to note that bookings are confined to a maximum of six, you must include a minimum of 1 adult in each transaction (with no more than two adults allowed in any group of six) to ensure as many children as possible can avail of the very special Christmas treat.
The lottery for Santa flights is now open and will close midnight Friday, November 1st 2019. Make sure you apply here to be in with a chance for this once in a lifetime opportunity. Winners will be notified via text on 6th November.

What Happens On the Day?
Starting with Mrs Claus and her team at check-in 90 minutes before departure, families will be treated to a really festive experience. Expect to see the chief elf and his helpers, games and treats in the lounge before take-off, and keep an eye out for Scrooge who will be checking if passengers are naughty or nice before boarding their flight!
Once on board, Santa’s elves will get you all settled comfortably before Santa makes a mid-air ‘sleigh to wing transfer’ to join the girls and boys on board. The Santa Flight itself lasts approximately 30 minutes, on arrival back to Shannon Airport, young passengers will be met by another team in red – The Airport Fire Service. Passengers can explore the fire tender and meet the team.
Finally, on departure, each child will receive a small gift from Shannon Airport.
