Arthur FrenchChairman, Ireland West Airport said: “The continued impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the airports business is evident as we experienced another year of very low passenger numbers.

“As we look ahead to 2022 the year ahead will present many challenges, but we can look forward with optimism following the recent positive route announcements by Ryanair and also the return to the airport of Aer Lingus.

We remain confident that with the support of our loyal customer base, Local Authority partners, stakeholders and Government, the airport will hopefully enjoy a much stronger year this year’.
