A €90m financial aid package to help restore air routes into Cork, Shannon, and Dublin airports will be a key part of Tuesday’s budget, the Irish Examiner reports
Senior Government sources have confirmed there is a “big move” to ensure tourist traffic returns to the country’s main airports, and that the sector will be prioritised.
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said there is a need to get international tourists back into Ireland.
"You will see a big move on aviation supports to get those routes back into Knock, back in Shannon, back into Cork and Dublin," he said.
The main way we get revenue is to actually get the tourists into the country, and that's why an aviation package is going to be a feature of the budget.”
