Ireland West Airport Knock Managing Director Statement
Ireland West Airport Knock managing director Joe Gilmore stated on the airport's website, "The airport were extremely disappointed to lose these two services last year following the ceasing trading of our longstanding partner Flybe, and it has been our priority during the last 12 months to secure a replacement carrier for these services, given the importance and popularity of these markets.
"We thank Ryanair for their continued unwavering support for the airport in expanding their route network during what continues to be the most challenging period in the airport's history, and, indeed, for aviation globally, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Furthermore, this announcement reflects both the airport's and our airline partners' commitment to rebuilding and continuing to expand our route network, and we are confident that with the support of our loyal customer base, local authority partners, stakeholders and government, the airport will return to growth in the not too distant future when international travel recovers from the effects of COVID-19."
