Social media is buzzing as air passengers breeze through Shannon Airport

Some travellers said it took them only nine minutes to get from parking their car to browsing duty free or eating breakfast before boarding. Security screening is also faster than regular airport security since the airport has invested in futuristic high-tech scanners.

“Wonderful experience @ShannonAirport,” Sky News host Kay Burley tweeted. Security was wafted through. Everything, including phones, drinks, and computers, is allowed to stay in your luggage.”

She was astounded to get through the airport and aboard her aircraft in less than six minutes, according to the prominent news reporter. A 30-second walk from the airport will take you to the nearest parking garage. It’s only 100 meters to the long-term parking lot.

“Shannon Airport is a true gentleman’s airport.” In response to Ms Burley, Dr Joe Smart used the handle @Donbtsmart to tweet, “You can’t beat parking the car 50 meters from the front entrance and jetting off to America.”

Dr. Smart was one of many persons who agreed with Kay Burley, raving about their time at Shannon Airport. Shannon, the first age-friendly airport in the world, was even praised by Age Friendly Limerick.

Shannon’s travelers, on the other hand, may reap the most benefit when they breeze through security at Boston, JFK, or Newark airports. Due to the presence of a US Customs operation at Shannon Airport, US airports essentially treat these passengers as US residents when they arrive in America, rather than the harsher security encountered by incoming tourists.

“A Cork family recently informed me that flying out of Shannon to the United States set their vacation off to the best possible start,” said Trevor Curran, Shannon Airport’s Marketing Manager. “It took them around 90 minutes to travel from Cork, and it only took them another 10 or 15 minutes to go from their car, though booking and security, and relax in the departures restaurants.”

“When airport personnel hears that type of response from customers, it truly lifts their spirits.” Passengers benefit significantly from our US Pre-Clearance Facility. When arriving in the United States, passengers flying from other airports may face a wait of an hour or more.

“The last thing you need to deal with when you get here is that.” It’s nice to hear our guests are getting their well-deserved vacations off to such a terrific start after Covid curtailed people’s travel over the last two years.”

Last year, Shannon Airport showcased its new €2.5 million state-of-the-art security screening equipment, which was part of a €17 million project that included a new €12.7 million hold baggage screening facility.

Passenger and luggage X-ray equipment is so precise that any security beeps may be narrowed, preventing travellers from having to remove liquids and computers out of their suitcases, as well as a slew of other hassles that are still typical in airports throughout the world.

Dream vacations in America

Imagining a once-in-a-lifetime post-Covid vacation? New York JFK, New York Newark, and Boston are all served by Shannon Airport. Your trip begins in earnest now that you’ve cleared customs.

Despite the fact that each of New York’s boroughs has something to offer visitors, Manhattan remains the most popular destination – and with good reason. From the bright lights of Times Square to the tranquility of Central Park, the City That Never Sleeps is a visitor’s fantasy.

If you’re visiting Boston for the first time, don’t miss the Freedom Trail, a red brick route that snakes through the city and leads tourists to 16 historic monuments, including Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House, Benjamin Franklin’s statue, and the Boston Massacre Monument. Boston has a vibrant entertainment scene, especially around Lansdowne Street near Kenmore Square, as well as hotels and guesthouses to suit all budgets.
