Kerry Airport Welcomes Passenger Transfer Facility at Dublin
As recently announced for Donegal Airport, Kerry Airport has also warmly welcomed the announcement that passengers travelling on the twice-daily Ryanair service to Dublin can now avail of an airport transfer facility being offered by the Dublin Airport Authority (daa). Passengers with an onward flight out of Dublin Airport (on the same day as their Kerry-Dublin flight) can now transit straight to their next Departure Gate without having to go landside and be re-screened. Regardless of the air carrier of the onward flight, passengers must be checked in and have a valid boarding pass on arrival at Dublin Airport to avail of this facility.
Kerry Airport CEO, John Mulhern, said: “We are entering the peak summer travel period and this positive development for passengers flying from Kerry to onward destinations through Dublin is most welcome. We are grateful to Minister of State, Hildegarde Naughton, and the Deputy Government Chief Whip, Brendan Griffin, the Department of Transport, the DAA, and the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) for working together to make it happen. We expect this new transfer system will take some of the stress out of traveling during what is a very busy time for all airports.”
This facility is available to passengers with Cabin baggage only. Passengers with hold baggage must collect their checked-in baggage as per normal on arrival at Dublin airport and proceed landside to check-in for their next flight. They will be issued with a ‘domestic transfer voucher’ which will expedite their entry to the Security screening area at Dublin airport once their luggage is checked in. Kerry Airport has direct flights to seven destinations including Dublin, London-Stansted, London-Luton, Manchester, Frankfurt-Hahn, Alicante & Faro with Ryanair.
