× Passenger Update: Customers are advised when booking car hire and car parking at Shannon Airport to use licenced onsite operators. A number of offsite car hire and parking companies are purporting to operate at Shannon Airport but they operate offsite and have no agreement to collect or drop off passengers at the airport.  Booking with these companies may result in delays at the airport during pick up and drop off.
