CHRISTMAS will come early for the business and tourism sectors in the Kingdom with the announcement from Kerry Airport that the new Aer Arann route between Kerry & Dublin will commence on November 3rd.

Kerry Airport Chairman Denis Cregan said: The new schedule will provide an early morning and lunchtime flight to Dublin with a mid-morning and early evening return to Kerry. Passengers will be again be afforded the opportunity to conduct a day’s business (or Christmas shopping) in Dublin while encouraging visitors to Kerry to enjoy some retail therapy or some relaxation here. The Kerry departure timings are best suited for connection with mid-morning USA-bound flights, while the arrival times into Kerry will add to the appeal of the county as a tourism destination for international passengers through Dublin.

Mr Cregan added that passengers will ultimately benefit from Aer Arann?s familiarity of the route having previously successfully operated it from 2002 to 2008 while the re-introduction of the PSO was a major positive step for both Kerry Airport and the county. Aer Arann will depart from Kerry at 7.30am & 12.30pm Monday to Saturday and 9.00am on Sundays with return flights at 11.10am and 7.00pm daily. Bookings for inbound and outbound flights between Dublin and Kerry can now be made at with fares from E39.99 including taxes and charges. Kerry Airport is ideally located for anyone wishing to travel on business or pleasure with direct flights to seven destinations including: London Stansted, London Luton, Frankfurt-Hahn, Alicante & Faro with Ryanair and to Dublin and Manchester with Aer Arann. Parking charges at Kerry Airport are cheaper than other airports. It only costs E35 to park a car at Kerry Airport for eight days compared to E49 for seven days in other airports and there are over 660 car park spaces available at Kerry Airport.
