The airstrip at Carrickfinn finished ahead of Barra Airport in Scotland in second place, with Nice airport coming third in the annual poll carried out PrivateFly, a private jet booking service. The airport finished second in 2017 and seventh in 2016.
The airport thanked people who voted. The management and staff are delighted to have Donegal Airport as the No.1 most scenic airport for the second year. A big thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for Donegal Airport, said in a tweet. Just two routes operate out of the airport: Stobart Air runs the Dublin-Donegal route, while Loganair flies to Glasgow.
Stobart said that this achievement is a great boost for Co Donegal and for the airport and is testament to the attractiveness of the county as a destination to visit. The poll of thousands of voters across the world ranked 129 airports, which was overseen by a panel of industry experts, PrivateFly says.
Donegal Airport is in the habit of winning awards – Harvey’s Point won TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award for hotels earlier this year, while National Geographic Traveller voted the county the “coolest place in the world” to visit in 2017.
