KERRY Airport Ireland has teamed-up with RDI Hub-based company SafeScore to be the world’s first airport to provide passengers with tailored and reliable information to effortlessly track country entry requirements.
By clicking on the Important Travel Documentation icon on www.KerryAirport.ie passengers will quickly find details of the Testing, Covid-19 Travel Documents and Quarantine requirements as well as the Vaccine Acceptance in destination countries.
The CEO of Kerry Airport Ireland, John Mulhern, said: “Kerry Airport, unlike other airports and indeed airlines, has experienced good volumes of passenger traffic since the restrictions were eased in July. This is a welcome development, however, one of the biggest disruptors to the recovery of the travel industry has been a lack of clearly communicated data within countries and between countries. We are proud to partner with SafeScore, a local company, to bring the latest Covid-19 information to our passengers.”
SafeScore, which is based in Killorglin’s RDI Hub, was founded in 2020 to solve the problems experienced by passengers when travelling the globe. The company’s solution allows travel providers to reduce the strain on both themselves, and their customers.
The CEO and Lead Founder of SafeScore, Nicholas Gorman, said: “We are grateful to Kerry Airport for embracing our technology. We have all the data airports and airlines need to ensure smoother transitions, and improve the customer experience. Some of the important data points we include are, child PCR testing ages, locator form information, specific vaccine requirements, and more. We are origin and destination-specific, so we tailor our data according to the routes required. Our database is a one-stop-shop for information on global travel restrictions and requirements.”
Throughout the height of the pandemic, Kerry Airport supported emergency air services and maintained the vital connection with Dublin for frontline staff and essential journeys, including those who must travel for healthcare treatments such as cancer care.
Kerry Airport continues to be an important strategic asset to Kerry in strengthening transportation links both nationally and internationally and we will play a greater economic role than ever when attracting investment and tourists to the region.
Kerry Airport currently services five Ryanair routes to London Luton, London Stansted, Manchester, Dublin, Faro and Alicante. For information on flights and schedules, visit www.KerryAirport.ie or phone +353 66 9764644.
