Ferris welcomes Aer Arann initiative on Kerry Dublin air link

7 October, 2010 - by Martin Ferris TD


The Sinn Féin TD for North Kerry Martin Ferris has welcomed the announcement that Aer Arann is to enter into negotiations to take over the air link between Kerry and Dublin that was placed under threat by Ryanair’s decision to drastically reduce the number of flights.

Deputy Ferris said:

“I very much welcome this news as it provides a means to preserve the existing link as a full service. Myself and the other Kerry TDs met last week with Minister Dempsey. Kerry County Council has also stressed to all concerned the critical importance of the link for both commercial and social reasons. I am pleased therefore that Aer Arann has undertaken to negotiate with a view to assuming responsibility and I hope that this is brought to a successful conclusion.” ENDS
