Minister for Transport Shane Ross has signed off on a Government memo that paves the way for €5 million in exchequer funding to extend Waterford Airport’s runway.

The runway extension will cost €12 million in total, with the remaining €7 million to be provided by private investors and local authorities in the region.

Minister of State John Halligan says it’s “excellent news” for Waterford Airport. “Cabinet approval is required to sanction the €5 million from Government and, prior to this, a memorandum must be circulated by Minister Ross to all other departments inviting them to make observations,” he says.

Extension will bring it up to 2250*45m, if given the final go ahead. Should be finalised within 1-2 weeks.
