Galway Airport Details: Galway Airport is situated at Carnmore, which is about four miles away from Galway City. The Airport is managed by Corrib Airport. Since 1998, it has doubled its passenger throughput with the actual figures now reaching almost 200,000 – making it the fastest growing regional airport in the country. The strategic position of the Airport has made it a favorite junction for people who either go around Ireland for business or pleasure. Galway Airport provides direct international access to Galway, its county, Connemara, and other neighbouring counties like Roscommon, Mayo, Clare, and Limerick. Itinerant passengers can even connect at Dublin, London Luton, Edinburgh, Manchester, and Lorient from anywhere in the world to Galway without having to take a long road or rail connection to their ultimate destinations in Western Ireland. Galway Airport has gained a reputation for quality service given to both passengers and airlines. It’s for this reason that it was accredited with the Q Mark through Excellence Ireland. In 2004, it was chosen as one of three finalists for the nationally-held Quality Award for Service. The Airport prides itself in having instituted short check-in times to help ease the hassles of transiting through airports. A ten-minute turn around time for baggage claim is what Galway Airport personnel strive for. Taxis are readily available outside the main terminal building. Other facilities available at Galway Airport are bureaux de change, and ATMs strategically located all over the terminal. The AV8 café bar is located at the main concourse.
