€2.2m Pre-Christmas Grant For Kerry Airport

OVER two million euro in Government funding to Kerry Airport Ireland to maintain vital safety operations during the latest wave of the pandemic is a welcome pre-Christmas boost, according to Kerry Airport CEO, John Mulhern.

It will ensure that the airport in Farranfore can continue to remain compliant with regulatory requirements in the areas of fire safety, air traffic control, and security.

The CEO at Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, said: “Yet again aviation, like many industries, finds itself adversely impacted by a new variant of Covid. With many choosing not to travel to await both hard data on the true impact of this variant and their booster doses of vaccine however this funding from the Department of Transport again demonstrates a strong commitment by Government to help us navigate the pandemic. We thank Minister Naughten and recognise the tireless work in the background by the team at the Department of Transport. Grateful thanks as always to our Kerry-based Government representatives, Minister for Education Norma Foley and Deputy Chief Whip Brendan Griffin for their continued support.”

Christmas is traditionally a very busy time at Kerry Airport with people returning to the Kingdom from London, Manchester, Germany and Dublin to celebrate the Festive Season at home.

Passengers are reminded to allow additional time for their journeys due to the seasonally longer queues which have been adversely impacted by Covid restrictions.

Kerry Airport Covid protocols remain in place and only passengers are permitted into the Terminal building with details at www.KerryAirport.ie. For information on flight schedules, please contact your airline. The Management, Staff and Board at Kerry Airport wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year.
