Our Commitment

Kerry Airport’s commitment to transition to a greener operation is proceeding with fervour.

We have signed up to Science Based Target initiatives (SBTi) on greenhouse gas emissions, continued the almost complete transition of our vehicular fleet to electric and begun a detailed examination of on-campus energy generation.

In recognising the challenges facing the aviation industry in the global battle to protect our environment, Kerry Airport has introduced measures including the purchase of electric aircraft tugs, baggage conveyors, special assistance passenger transport vehicles, and an incident support vehicle.

Funding was also allocated for the provision of an airfield patrol vehicle, a runway maintenance vehicle, a rescue vehicle, and an upgrade of all carpark and runway lighting to low energy LED. A Department of Transport Grant will help fund the provision of an electric de-icing vehicle and potentially Green Energy Generation as part of our efforts to meet our sustainability objectives over the coming years. A feasibility study including planning for substantial photovoltaic energy generation on campus is at present in progress.
