Commenting on the inaugural Ireland West Knock Holiday Fair in Mayo, Annette Kearney, Marketing and Route Development Manager, Ireland West Airport Knock said: “We are well aware that holiday makers this year are looking for the best value more than ever before when it comes to booking their holiday as well as wanting an excellent choice of destinations. This year, along with the excellent range of holidays from Ireland’s leading Travel Partners such as Concorde Travel, Falcon JWT, (Zurich) Falcon Travelhouse, Panorama, Sunworld, Enjoy Travel, Paul Claffey Tours, Joe Walsh Tours and Croatia Tours, we are delighted to be offering passengers the option of two new destinations with the addition of Alicante and Zurich to our European destination portfolio. Low cost airline, Ryanair will begin the Airport’s first scheduled European service in June. As well as these two exciting holiday options, packages are also available to Split, Algrave, Ibiza, Palma, Majorca and Salou.”
Commenting on recent booking trends in the last number of years, Annette continued:  “A trend that we have noticed in booking behaviour in the last number of years, is that many people wait until the summer to get a last minute deal but unfortunately many people are left disappointed as these deals or seats on flights are too often not available in the peak summer months when people want to travel. We would encourage the public to come along to the holiday fair to discuss with the travel agents the best value holiday options from Ireland West Airport Knock and to book early so they reserve their seats and holidays. Admission is free and everyone that comes along will be entered into a draw with the chance to win a sun holiday for two!”
