AUDI chose Kerry as its base to showcase the new Q7 to motor journalists from around the world.

Over a two-week period from the July 16th to 27th, journalists came to the county from as far away as the Middle East, Canada, China, Japan and Europe to test drive the new Audi Q7 around the Ring of Kerry and Slea Head.

The Chief Executive of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, said: “We are honoured that Audi, a premium car brand, selected Kerry Airport as the base for this major promotional event. The programme included daily private charter flights from Munich to Kerry with almost 300 journalists arriving from all over the globe. Not only did they experience the convenience of traveling through an efficient regional airport, they were also treated to the wonderful hospitality and majestic scenery that is unique to the Kingdom of Kerry.”

The Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Mr Brendan Griffin, welcomed the Audi delegation when they first arrived into Kerry.

Images of Kerry, its many incredible and iconic vistas, are now appearing in journals, social media platforms and in print all over the world.

John Mulhern said that the Audi team are planning a return visit to Kerry: “It certainly proves that Kerry can hold its own on the world stage as a giant in tourism and a commercial destination to attract this type of unique business. The Audi team were so impressed with both Kerry and the welcome they received they plan to return.”

He thanked the team from Audi for choosing Kerry Airport as their base for the project and for their professionalism throughout which resulted in little or no impact on the day-to-day running of the airport during the peak tourism season. He also thanked Paudie McCarthy of Eleco Electrical, Fire & Security Services.
