Kerry Airport Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Air International Travel to Wild Atlantic Kerry

Kerry Airport 50th Anniversary

Kerry Airport, C.E.O., John Mulhern proudly launches Kerry Airports new branding and website.

CONFIRMATION of seven routes for 2020, a new-look website and a charity partner to underline plans to reach out to communities more throughout the Kingdom are among Kerry Airport’s key plans as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Kerry Airport was officially opened on Saturday 30th August 1969 by the then Minister for Transport and Power, Brian Lenihan TD, and 50 years on the vision of its founding fathers has been realised in the shape of a successful and respected international airport.

Half a century on from that historic occasion, modern passengers will be delighted to learn that Ryanair will continue to serve Kerry with flights to Berlin and Frankfurt Hahn in Germany, London Luton and Stansted in the UK and, to the delight of sun-seekers, Alicante and Faro in 2020.

The short 50 minutes journey from Kerry to Dublin is a major saving in time for busy Kerry businesses needing access to Dublin and onward to destinations in the USA, Middle East and Australia. Seamless interlining of the Aer Lingus flights from USA to Kerry via Dublin is seeing increased American tourists coming direct to the Kingdom.

The CEO of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, said: “Over the next 12 months, as Kerry Airport celebrates its 50th anniversary, we will honour past accomplishments and ensure the airport’s continued success and contribution to the community of Kerry and the wider region. Our airport is situated in Wild Atlantic Kerry – the most prime location in Ireland with so much potential and with enough charm to continue filling flights with passengers from all over Europe.”

Another key development moving forward, to the benefit of passengers traveling in and out of Kerry and the hospitality sector in the county, is the development of the new-look and easy to navigate airport website.

The economic footprint of Kerry Airport influences employment and the earnings of those directly employed at the airport, the support services onsite and in the supply chain. Kerry Airport contributes approximately €9.5 million to the local economy each year.

The website, which has undergone a major transformation, offers visitors a streamlined view of Kerry as an accessible destination and gateway. It presents the timetable in an easy-to-view format along with the essential live flight information which is updated regularly.

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, Berlin, Alicante & Faro with Ryanair and to Dublin with Aer Lingus Regional.  There is ample and great value parking at Kerry Airport as well as friendly service.
