Episode 43: The award winning Donegal Airport
At Carrickfinn, on the top North-Western corner of Ireland, Donegal Airport opens up the North-West for the leisure and business traveller. Located at Carrickfinn, Kincasslagh, the airport is approximately 15 mins drive from Dungloe and Gweedore, and 45 mins from Letterkenny. Donegal Airport is situated on the west coast in the area of the Rosses/Gweedore, just 40 minutes flying time from Dublin.
In 2018 and again in 2019 Donegal Airport won the PrivateFly Most Scenic Airport Approach in the World Award. They now have followed that achievement with another that’s equally impressive, the first Irish airport to be awarded the EcoMerit Environmental Certification for their commitment to continuous environmental improvement.
The airport provides badly needed connectivity for the region with twice daily flights to Dublin with Aer Lingus and five flights weekly to Glasgow with Loganair.
