Shannon Airport has streamlined the travel experience for passengers travelling to the US with the introduction of an innovative new Mobile Passport Control app (MPC). The free mobile app is designed to reduce inspection time at the US pre-clearance facility at Shannon Airport.
US-bound passengers can now simply complete part of the pre-clearance process on the new app before arriving at the airport. Through the secure app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, passengers can create a profile using their passport information, which will then allow them to submit their travel documentation, photo and Customs declaration electronically, removing the need to complete a paper declaration form.
“At Shannon Airport, our approach is centred around ‘making it easy’ for passengers, so we are delighted with the latest addition of Mobile Passport Control for US-bound passengers,” said Niall Kearns, Airport Director, Shannon Airport. “As one of only two airports in Europe to offer US pre-clearance facilities, we pride ourselves on being able to provide a seamless airport experience. The MPC app, in addition to our existing time-saving US pre-clearance facilities, mean passengers can now avail of an even shorter pre-clearance process and will have more time to relax and enjoy their airport experience. When they touch down on US soil, they also have the added benefit of landing as domestic passengers having completed the entire pre-clearance process prior to departure from Shannon. We know our passengers will be very pleased with this latest time-saving technology, which further bolsters our commitment to ensuring a quick and efficient travel process for our customers.”
