Is it true that Sligo airport, is still getting subsidies to maintain its infrastructure , despite not seeing flights for a few years .
I would have thought, that Sligo being relatively close to the border , they might have tried to convince an airline to operate .
But knowing it's been pretty much there , unused , so what is the logic behind Waterford?. Does it really stand a chance , when most Irish folk are doing what UK citizens did with the opening of the motorways , and simply drive a couple of Hours to Dublin .

That said they must be confident of capturing a larger carrier , Dublin always seems to be bursting at the seams .
So would Waterford be a good Cargo airport ? . Also what destinations are they hoping to serve ? I could see perhaps London , Manchester , Edinburgh and maybe a summer route to the usual Malaga and Alicante . But those cam be served easily by ' Ejets ' is not the current runway able to support smaller Jetliners ?.
