New helicopter base in Kerry Airport will service the oil and gas exploration industry

A new helicopter base in Kerry Airport will service the oil and gas exploration industry.

The newly-appointed General Manager at Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, has announced that a new helicopter base will soon open in Farranfore.

He says Babcock’s decision to locate a base at Kerry Airport opens a significant opportunity for the local economy to benefit from the imminent re-opening of Ireland’s oil and gas exploration industry.

The new Babcock operations at Kerry Airport will be the base from which crews on the rigs will be taken to and from shore.
