KERRY Airport is still open despite the cessation of Ryanair flights this week..

CEO John Mulhern said the Kerry-Dublin flights will continue to facilitate urgent transport for critical staff, supplies and essential travel if needed.

In a statement released today Mr Mulhern said; “In this our 50th year, Kerry Airport could never have predicted such difficult times as we are experiencing now with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are acutely conscious of how necessary restrictions have impacted on people’s lives and how the people of Kerry are feeling anxiety about their health and future employment.

The connectivity that Kerry Airport provides is an integral part of tourism and industry in both the county and the region. This must continue.

Ryanair flights from Kerry will cease this week however we are confident that, when they can and it is safe to do so, they will return with vigour and renewed enthusiasm.

Kerry Airport will now become an even more important part of the vital air services to the county. Our staff have taken significant salary reductions and Leave to ensure we stay open.

Staying open means that all emergency air services will have an airport in the county when they need us. Together with Stobart Air we will maintain the twice daily connection to Dublin with limited passengers, to ensure physical distancing, but enable urgent transport for critical staff, supplies and your essential travel if needed.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and in particular to Minister Brendan Griffin TD for his support in ensuring this essential connection continues.

From all of us here at Kerry Airport to you, stay safe and well and we look forward positively to a better future, the people of Kerry are a resolute family and we will recover together.”
