Donegal Airport operates twice daily scheduled flights to Dublin and four times weekly to Glasgow International with worldwide onward connections. We were voted the world’s most scenic approach for the third year in 2020 and our airport is surrounded by protected Natura 2000 sites and a Blue Flag awarded beach. We are committed to protecting this unspoiled natural scenery and natural heritage.
As with all organisations, we recognise that our activities do involve negative environmental impacts. It is our aim to minimise these by;
Complying with environmental law
Measuring and monitoring our environmental performance
Actively seeking to continuously improve our performance
Minimising the risk of pollution from our operations
Encouraging our suppliers, customers & other stakeholders to do likewise
This is reflected in our commitment to Environmental Certification.
Our most significant direct environmental impacts arise from the electricity and oil we consume. In order to minimise this, we take steps to ensure that equipment and lighting is only operating when required, and that energyefficient LED lighting will be in use throughout the premises.
We routinely monitor our electricity, oil and mains water usage and operate a segregation system to ensure our waste is recycled wherever possible and landfill waste is minimised.
In all our activities, we aim to be an environmentally responsible member of the community we serve.
