Tweets of the day:

@BelfastAirport We are delighted to announce that the viewing gallery is reopen. Here’s Jim & Jack enjoying their experience.

@julianoneill @AerLingus says recent media reports of damages claim by @BelfastAirport being for £40m are “materially inaccurate.”

@Mark_J_Henry Michael Cawley, ex-Ryanair, tells #IHF2015 @TourismIreland & @Failte_Ireland are in the top 10% of all national tourist bodies he dealt with.

@Mark_J_Henry Short haul air access to Dublin to be +5-6% this summer but most growth will be in Dublin, Michael Cawley says we must grow regions #IHF2015.

@Mark_J_Henry #IHF2015 hears how @TourismIreland’s mrktg budget dropped from €55m in 2007 to €35m this year, leaving Ireland at a competitive disadvantage.

@PEdmondAero @JohnLStrickland IAG can go hostile and win control of EI without Govt stake – so Govt has to avoid overplaying its hand. Hard path to walk.

@Swift1745 Air access central to future growth Michael Cawley, Chairman @failte_ireland #IHF2015.

@Swift1745 Michael Cawley, Chairman @failte_ireland agrees that tech developments (air bnb, Uber, etc) are changing things dramatically #IHF2015.

@Swift1745 We need to develop a new brand for Dublin similar to ‘I love NY’ – Michael Cawley, Chairman @failte_ireland #IHF2015.

@Swift1745 Cheaper airports get more visitors – Michael Cawley #IHF2015.

@Swift1745 Ryanair will fly 10m more passengers next year – they will all go to the best value airports – Michael Cawley, Chairman @failte_ireland.

@TravelExtraIre Madeira is back, direct flights operated by Concorde Travel, Europe Airpost charter Dublin to Funchal Thursdays from May 7 to Sept 17.
