SHANNON Airport has confirmed a very special man in a red and white suit will be taking to the skies with 2,000 children and their parents this Christmas.
Santa Claus will fly the lucky children 15,000 feet above the west coast of Ireland on what he promises will be a magical journey.
The much-loved VIP along with his elves will depart from Shannon Airport on Saturday, the 30th of November and Sunday, the 1st of December.
Tickets for this festive experience will be allocated through a lottery system, with all profits raised being given to Limerick Suicide Watch and Irish Cancer Society.
The event is one of a number of events organised by the Shannon Group charity committee during the year.
Commenting on the Santa Flights, Chairman of the Shannon Group charity committee, Isabel Harrison says, “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”.
The lottery is now live and details on how to enter can be found here.
A €1.50 per seat lottery application fee will apply to enter, with a flat booking fee of €1.50.
The lottery closes on Friday November 1st at midnight and the winners will be notified by text soon after.
