More than 2000 additional passengers are set to fly into Kerry over the coming months following the debut flight of a new charter service, operated by Austrian travel company Moser Reisen.
The red carpet was rolled out and the champagne was flowing at Kerry Airport this week to welcome the first 200 people who arrived into the country on the first flight which landed just after 8.30am on Easter Monday.
The Manager of Kerry Airport, Peter Moore, said: “These charters will operate throughout the months of April, May and June with flights arriving into Kerry from Graz Airport which is the second largest airport in Austria and Linz Airport which is the third largest airport in Austria. This charter series will bring 2,200 tourists directly into the county of Kerry. This is the first charter series of its kind into Kerry and the first charter series of its kind from Austria.”
Kerry Airport already has direct flights to seven destinations including: London Luton, London Stansted, Frankfurt-Hahn, Berlin (from November 2 to March 24), Alicante & Faro (summer 2017) with Ryanair, and to Dublin with Aer Lingus Regional.
