Kerry Airport to remain open

Kerry Airport says it will remain open throughout the current Level 5 restrictions, and beyond, serving passengers travelling on the twice daily Kerry-Dublin route and facilitating emergency air services.

It follows Ryanairs announcement to stop flights from all regional airports for a month from November 14th.

Ryanair had already reduced the frequency of services from Kerry to London Luton and Stansted while flights to Germany are not operating at present.

Kerry Airport CEO John Mulhern said the airport will continue to operate into the future to facilitate the needs of the emergency air services and for the PSO route between Kerry and Dublin.

Mr Mulhern said that airport staff understand everyone’s concerns about getting home to see loved ones this Christmas and they remain hopeful that there will be some positive developments heading into the festive season.
