Over €2.1m has been allocated to Ireland West Airport Knock under the Regional Airports Programme 2021-2025.
Its part of over €11 million in funding announced for regional airports this morning by the Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Galway West TD Hildegarde Naughton.
Each airport received the amount of funding requested for their respective projects.
Many of the projects incorporate valuable climate benefits and others include new safety and security systems, incorporating more energy efficient components, as well as components that are recyclable.
Airports eligible for funding under the Airports Programmes will also be eligible to apply for operational grant-aid, targeted at vital safety and security related operational expenses later this year.
Minister Hildegarde Naughton told Midwest News that this funding will help ensure regional airports remain financially sustainable as we move beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.
