Written answers (Question to Transport)

Details of Exchequer support under the Regional Airports Programme, both capital and operational, for the regional airports from 2009 to 2018 and to date in 2019 are set out in the following table.

Following completion of a Value for Money Review of the Regional Airports Programme in 2011, the Government took a decision to cease funding for both Sligo and Galway Airports under that Programme from 2012 onwards.

The figures for Donegal, Knock and Kerry airports in 2019 represent the capital allocations for those airports that I announced on 11 June last. The works covered by those allocations are currently underway and the associated grant payments will be made when these works are completed later in the year.
