Donegal is world’s most scenic airport approach for 2018

Last year we highlighted Donegal Airport’s incredible achievement of being named the second most scenic landing IN THE WORLD! Well, this year they’ve only gone and done one better…

According to CNN Travel, Donegal Airport is the world’s number one most scenic airport landing. In a survey compiled by jet charter company PrivateFly, voters who chose Donegal as their number one said:

“You fly in low over the tiny airport building with the conical mass of quartzite that is Errigal mountain on your right and sweep out over an emerald sea with the perma-white froth of the Wild Atlantic Way lashing the many tiny rocky islands in a turquoise sea. Then the pilot completes his turn and dashes back towards the crescent of golden sand that is Carrickfin beach.”

“Spectacular views of the Atlantic coastline, the beautiful Mount Errigal and a beach which is the most stunning in the world.”

“From the smattering of clouds, the Wild Atlantic Way appears like an oasis. Beautiful clear blue waters and the clearest sand you’ve ever seen.”

Pretty convincing, right? It really does have to be seen to be believed.
