Hi there, I know that late afternoon EI flights are (often?) not pre cleared for the US. However, does anyone know if EI 111 departing Dublin at 13H30 via Shannon to JFK systematically go through preclearance in Ireland so that you can zip through to customs only on arrival ?
cheers

Not sure about the exact flight, but I have flown out of DUB to ORD around that time and have been cleared...then again, I didn't stop in SNN. So basically, my answer serves no purpose  Wink

directly from an EI source reading this:

"Only EI109 DUB-JFK, or any flight departing after 4PM local time won't pre-clear. INS leaves at 4"

thanks for your response Andrew...did u find the info on their website ? could not get it on their .fr site. I suppose even tho we board in Dublin we will be clearing in Shannon since the flight stops there.
Thank you SW733 for taking the time  Wink to post !!!:

Quoting Foxecho (Reply 2):
"Only EI109 DUB-JFK, or any flight departing after 4PM local time won't pre-clear. INS leaves at 4"

Is that right? If it is, then the information on the EI website is rather misleading. According to the link below, all passengers departing DUB and SNN can pre-clear in Ireland.
