After closing for three months due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ireland West Airport Knock is reopening this morning.
Initially, Ryanair will operate services to ten destinations.
The airport has implemented a number of new protocols to protect travellers against the virus, including mandatory mask-wearing for all passenger-facing staff, an enhanced cleaning regime, and the installation of protective screens and sanitisation stations.
The airport also requires passengers to wear masks and refrain from travelling if showing any symptoms related to the coronavirus.
In a statement, airport management said: “At Ireland West Airport your wellbeing is our number one priority. We understand that air travel in this current coronavirus (COVID-19) world is a new experience for everybody. It is our priority to ensure that all our passengers and staff at the airport keep healthy and safe.”
The Irish Authorities advise against all non-essential travel overseas until further notice. This includes Great Britain but does not apply to Northern Ireland.
