Transport Minister Seamus Brennan is pledging Government support for subsidised flights from Farranfore, but won’t say if the current level will be maintained. Minister Brennan met the Directors of Kerry Airport today while on a visit to the county. A consultants report is recommending that the subsidy should be cut when it`s renewed next year. Aer Arann is scheduled to earn over five million euro this year. Minister Brennan says there will have to be negotiations over the size of the subsidy.
