Donegal Airport has been granted €638,000 for operational funding for 2022.
The allocation brings the total allocation to €1,360,578.
There had previous been a capital grant allocation of €722,169.
The latest funding is being administered under the Regional Airports Programme 2021-2025, which provides targeted support for vital safety and security operations at the airports such as air traffic control, fire services and security, ensuring airports can continue to remain compliant with regulatory requirements in these areas.
Commenting, Minister Charlie McConalogue said “This funding is important for Donegal Airport which is a key facility for County Donegal.
“It is anticipated that this level of funding, which is 41% higher than last year’s operational funding allocation, will meet 100% of all eligible salary costs in the areas of safety, security and air traffic control at these airports in 2022.’
