Having already received an unprecedented number of queries in relation to its Santa Flights, Shannon Airport has today announced booking details.
The airport confirmed that the flights will be available to book online via shannonairport.ie from 12.00 (midday) on Wednesday 3 December.
This year’s event, which is being run in association with Ryanair, will operate on December 13th and 14th when ten flights in all, carrying almost 1,900 passengers, take to the skies over Clare.
A €10 booking fee is being charged this year. However, the money raised will go to two Mid-West based charities who have also been allotted 80 seats on the flights.
Booking initially opened last Thursday on the airport’s website, which later crashed due to excessive demand.
Management were forced to suspend bookings while efforts were made to restore the system. A short time later however bookings were suspended completely but will now resume this coming Wednesday.
