Kerry Hoteliers Seek Government Commitment To PSO Support for Kerry Airport

The Kerry branch of the Irish Hotels Federation has today called on the Government to reaffirm its commitment to retaining the PSO support for flights on the Dublin-Kerry route.

Commenting on recent indications that Ryanair plans to resume flights between Dublin and Kerry on a commercial basis, IHF Kerry Branch spokesperson Padraig McGillicuddy states:

"The Dublin-Kerry air route provides a vital link for tourism into Kerry, acting as a gateway both for business travellers and international tourism via Dublin.

It is therefore vital that the Minister for Transport commits to retaining the PSO structure as an ongoing safeguard to support the financial viability of same-day return air access from Dublin.

This must be a cornerstone of strategic tourism policy for our region going forward.”
