Pick Up Drop Off

Meeting someone off their flight at Shannon Airport is so easy.  We’ve put together a few pointers to keep in mind, ensuring you’re in and out with as little hassle as possible.

Airport Pick Up or Drop Off Tips at Shannon Airport:

Before you leave

It’s a good idea to check Live Flight Arrivals/Departures information here on the Shannon Airport website before making your way to the airport. You should also check flight information with the airline your passenger is travelling on.


If dropping off someone for their flight, or meeting them as they arrive, the best place to park is the short stay car park. Follow the signs for Short Stay Car Park on approach to the airport. The first 15 minutes are free and it’s a very reasonable hourly rate after that. 

While you wait

For those with a little time, you can wait in comfort at JJ Ruddles and enjoy a coffee while you do. While there, you can keep an eye on the arrivals door and flight screens. You can also download the Shannon Airport App for up-to-date details on your flight.

If you find yourself with time to browse, WH Smiths have an excellent selection of books, newspapers and magazines, while the Shannon Irish Design Store on Level 1 stocks a range of gifts including woollens, jewellery and ceramics.

Meeters, greeters with reduced mobility  

If you have reduced mobility and are dropping off or picking up, you can get up to one hour free parking at Shannon Airport. To avail of this please present your entry ticket and Blue Badge at the Car Park Customer Service Desk in the Depatures Check In Area. Anyone who needs PRM assistance from the car park can contact our assistance desk from any of the contact points in the car parks.
