SHANNON turned into a Christmas haven over the weekend for  4,500  children, who experienced a trip of a lifetime, a meeting with Santa 15,000 feet above sea level.

Shannon Airport and Ryanair teamed up to put on free flights for the children, with the same number also due to fly out next weekend. Before take-off, the children were entertained in the terminal building.

Operation Santa,  which had 10% of seats reserved for children with special needs from the region, marks a new deal between the airline and Shannon for 18 destinations next year, dramatically extending connectivity options for airport users.
