Ireland West Knock Airport officially opened in May 1986 after the diligent lobbying efforts of Monsignor James Horan. The purpose of his campaign was twofold. The monsignor wanted to assist the local economy and to make it easier to reach the nearby Catholic Knock Shrine. Pilgrims frequently journey to the area to celebrate the 1879 vision of the Virgin Mary. Other names for the airport over the years include Horan International, Connaught Regional, and Knock International.
Located in County Mayo, the airport is utilized by Ireland's national airline Aer Lingus as well as discount regional carriers. More than 650,000 passengers use the airport to fly to destinations within Ireland, the United Kingdom and on the European continent. There are also scheduled and charter flights to resort destinations, such as the Canary Islands. The airport has received several awards for customer service.
Inside the single terminal, travelers have access to computers in the Internet kiosks and complimentary Wi-Fi. There are banking facilities, currency exchange locations, a prayer room and passenger lounges. The airport has baggage services, lost and found, and an office that provides information on the nearby Knock Shrine. There are 1,500 parking spaces in the long-term and short-term surface lots. Many of these spaces are less than a five-minute walk to the terminal. There is also a consolidated car rental facility that features several internationally recognized agencies. The airport is fully accessible by people with reduced mobility. The facility is committed to being carbon neutral to achieve its goal of long-term sustainability.
The airport is strategically situated within a 90-minute drive of the area's major cities, including Castlebar, Donegal, Galway, and Sligo. Knock Airport serves as a gateway to the rugged coastline and picturesque countryside of northwest Ireland.
