Posted by


KERRY Airport Ireland has introduced enhanced measures to protect and ensure a smooth and safe passage for passengers who plan to return to the sky next month following the relaxation of Covid-19 travelling restrictions.

All Ryanair routes to London, Manchester, Hahn, Berlin, Alicante, Faro will commence from or after July 1st, while the twice daily Aer Lingus Regional Kerry-Dublin service, operated by Stobart Air, has continued to function throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Multiple hand sanitising stations have been installed along with specialised cleaning services for virus sanitation and improvements to public washrooms at Kerry Airport.

Passengers must wear a face mask on entering the terminal and throughout their journey through the airport and on the aircraft. A limited stock of face masks will be available to purchase at the airport.

Where possible, with the exception of children and those who require assistance, anyone accompanying passengers should drop off and say their farewells from the car park.

In addition to personal safety, time will be of the essence when travelling on a flight out of Kerry due to the 2-metre social distancing guidelines. Passengers must allow additional time for their journey while factoring-in potentially longer queuing times.

The staff at Kerry Airport would welcome the cooperation of passengers to maintain a seamless transition from check-in, through security and onto the aircraft.

The CEO of Kerry Airport Ireland, John Mulhern, said: “We have remained open throughout the pandemic and in being proud to do so, we have facilitated the needs of the emergency air services who have required a landing base in Kerry. It’s time to get back to normal. We have invested in ensuring that passengers and our staff are safe from coronavirus. Kerry Airport continues to be an important strategic asset to County Kerry in strengthening transportation links both nationally and internationally. It will play a greater economic role than ever when attracting investment and tourists to the region.”

The new measures reflect both Ireland’s national COVID-19 guidelines and the recent guidelines developed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), to ensure the safe return of increased operations in Europe’s aviation sector following the unprecedented downturn in recent months.
