Posted in Connect on October 2, 2019.


Mayo County Council are delighted to welcome the news of a new route between Ireland West Airport and Palma Majorca beginning next March.

Lauda Air will commence the new route, which will operate twice weekly, on March 31, 2020.

Attending the announcement at Ireland West Airport Knock, Chief Executive of Mayo County Council, Peter Hynes, says the announcement “highlights the importance of Ireland West Airport to the region and provides a welcome boost for Tourism in this area and we look forward to welcoming new visitors to Mayo and the West.

“This announcement, coming on the back of the recent Strategic Development Zone approval, the new IWAK to Cologne route and the opening of the newly refurbished runway by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, is a further boost for Ireland West Airport and County Mayo.”

Cllr Brendan Mulroy, Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, added; “This is a major milestone for Ireland West Airport, launching the first ever regional Ireland service for Lauda Air, and Mayo County Council are proud to be a partner. Ireland West Airport is the jewel in the crown of the West of Ireland and this new route only further enforces that. It is a massive boost for Mayo and the West, underlining the importance of having an international airport in the region.”

Lauda is a low-cost carrier based in Vienna in Austria and currently flies to 38 destinations across Europe.

Majorca has been always been a firm favourite and now it will be even easier for holidaymakers in the West of Ireland to get there with twice weekly direct, scheduled low cost flights. It is a superb destination for families, couples and singles alike. Majorca has a whole host of wonders including electric nightlife and a culture-rich capital, lush countryside and towering mountains, as well as friendly resorts and peaceful coves. Everything’s encircled by gorgeous beaches, too. On top of that, you’ll have a huge range of activities to choose from, including theme parks, waterparks and stunning cycling routes.
