The Taoiseach has agreed to meet with management from Ireland West Airport Knock in the coming days to discuss the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Mayo airport is to close next week for a month, as a result of Ryanair suspending operations from all regional airports for a 4-week period before Christmas.

Passenger numbers have plummeted at the airport this year, and losses are mounting.

Mayo Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary told Midwest News that Taoiseach Mícheal Martin is aware of the importance of the airport to this region, and has agreed to meet management in the coming days to discuss what assistance might be forthcoming..
