Waterford Chamber welcomes the news that An Bord Pleanala have approved the runway extension at Waterford Airport.
 
According to Gerald Hurley, CEO Waterford Chamber: “This is most welcome news and the penultimate chapter to a very long running campaign for us here at Waterford Chamber. Securing the necessary funding will continue to be a priority for us now.
 
“We have vigorously lobbied Government on this extension, right up to last week in fact, as it is one of the key requirements of many of our members in industry. We are one step closer to an Airport which will help the region in terms of attracting foreign direct investment and further expansion of existing companies. It will also play a key role in terms of tourism expansion for the region.
 
“There is still a way to go but today is a giant leap forward.”
