Ryanair has given a commitment to running the Kerry Dublin route until at least February.
The low-cost carrier began a daily flight between Farranfore and the capital on July 28th; from Wednesday this will increase to twice a day.
This is after Stobart Air went into liquidation on June 12th; it had operated the Kerry-Dublin PSO government-subsidised route on behalf of Aer Lingus Regional.
The Government launched an emergency procurement process to restore the PSO, but Ryanair announced it would operate the service commercially, without a subsidy.
CEO of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern says Ryanair has indicated it wants to make the Kerry Dublin route a commercial success, and has given a commitment to it until at least February.
