Listen to the pure excitement of the lucky children on our Santa Flights

17 December 2013

Click here to listen as the excitement unfolded at Shannon Airport for almost 2,000 children as Shannon Airport and Ryanair’s magical ‘Operation Santa’ had lift off.

The children were taken 15,000 ft into the skies to meet with Santa on board the Ryanair flights.  They also got to lap up the Christmas party atmosphere generated at the airport, complete with Santa’s elves, cartoon costumed characters, a Punch & Judy Show, balloon artists and a range of giveaways.

The Santa Flights celebrate the airport’s first year as an independent entity and mark the commencement of Ryanair’s eight new routes – Berlin, Paris, Fuerteventura, Warsaw, Faro, Munich, Nice and Krakow – at the end of March.
