Kerry shows its worth to Berlin to mark new route
The first flights on the new, twice-weekly Kerry-to-Berlin arrived to and departed from Kerry Airport within the last fortnight, and this week a 35-strong Kerry delegation touched down in Berlin to highlight the new route and the importance of the German market to the Kingdom.
The delegation featured Minister of State Brendan Griffin; Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council John Sheahan; councillors; representatives of tourist interests, Ryanair, sports groups, and Kerry County Council, and over a series of events, the delegates engaged with key German travel trade and media representatives, including State President Mr Ralf Wieland.
"The new twice-weekly flight from Berlin to Kerry is really good news for tourism from Germany to Kerry and the South West," Tourism Ireland Manager for Central Europe Zoë Redmond said.
"We are delighted to co-operate with Ryanair and our partners from Kerry in the promotion of this new service," she added.
