‘The South East Experience’ displayed at Waterford Airport Arrivals Hall

January 2010

A cooperative project between Failte Ireland South East and Waterford Airport has seen the arrivals Hall at Waterford Airport turned into a visual display of the delights from all across the South East region.

The newly placed artwork adorning all of the walls of Waterford Airport’s Arrivals Hall focuses passengers on the many activities and destinations across, Waterford, Wexford, Tipperary, Kilkenny and Carlow.

Commenting on the unveiling of the artwork this week, Sinead McAuliffe, Regional Tourism Development Officer, Failte Ireland South East said, “We are delighted to work with Waterford Airport on branding the arrivals hall with a South East theme.  It is hoped that the fantastic visual of activities and destinations will portray to visitors that there is a huge variety of ‘things to do’ throughout the South East.”

According to CEO at Waterford Airport Graham Doyle, “We always enjoy working with Gary Breen, Sinead and the team in Failte Ireland Southeast to promote tourism into the Southeast.  Overseas visitor trips to the South East have been on a steady upward trend in recent years growing by approximately 12% between 2004 and 2008. The share of GB-based visitors travelling by air over the same period has also increased from 42% in 2004 to 55% in 2008 and we’re keen to begin marketing the region to all visitors as soon as they land in Waterford.”

Waterford Airport with Aer Arann operate twice daily flights to London Luton, five times a week return flights to Manchester and four times a week return flights to Birmingham plus twice weekly flights to Galway. Further information can be found on www.flywaterford.com
