Vilamoura a short drive from Faro Airport.

KERRY Airport has just launched its 2022 Summer Sun routes of Alicante in Spain and Faro in Portugal with

They are just two of the seven routes, the others being London (Luton & Stansted), Manchester, Frankfurt (Hahn), and Dublin, that will increase in frequency for the season ahead.

The CEO of Kerry Airport Ireland, John Mulhern, said: “Faro and Alicante have been serviced directly from Kerry since 2010 and during that time holiday-makers from Kerry have enjoyed great value while making memories in two of the most popular sun destinations on the planet. Ryanair City Breaks to Frankfurt Hahn, London, Manchester and Dublin complete the perfect offering for passengers who have so much to choose from when it comes to booking the perfect getaway from Kerry Airport.”

The launch of the summer schedule coincided with Kerry Airport’s welcome to over 200 overseas tour operators who landed for Meitheal 2022 in Killarney.

Taking place on Thursday March 31 and Friday, April 1, it brings international buyers and tour operators from across the globe into Ireland to meet with Irish tourism businesses.

The Meitheal delegates were treated to a surprise performance of traditional music and dance from Siamsa Tíre, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland, when they landed at Kerry Airport.

Children from the local Knockaderry National School in Farranfore stood for a Guard of Honour as the visitors walked from the Airport to the coaches that transferred them to Killarney.

Management at Kerry Airport are confident that the new summer flight schedule and tourism promotion events, such as Meitheal, will help fuel the recovery in passenger numbers to the pre-pandemic levels.

Ryanair serves London every day (Luton 7 days; Stansted 5 days); Manchester (2 days), Alicante (2 days until end of October), Faro (2 days until end of October), Frankfurt Hahn (3 days) and Dublin (twice daily). Check out for more

    I hate Ryanair and will never travel with them ! Why can’t Kerry Airport attract and lobby Government for Emerald Airways ( Aer Lingus franchise ) to operate the route? Donegal has it on their PSO route , why not us in Kerry Farranfore? Why do we always have to depend on O’Leary’s shower of misfits who cost the airport so many jobs in recent past? We had it soo good with Aer Arann , and then Ryanair stepped in and caused mayhem on the DUB-KIR route, by cutting schedules and costing many jobs! And here we are again?

    But could do with another flight to Manchester
    During the week

    My children would love it
