Donegal Airport has the most scenic airport landing in the world.
What better way to start a vacation than with a stunning landing introducing you to the beauty of the country you have just arrived in? While Dublin and Shannon airports may be the main destinations for travelers to Ireland, anybody who has the opportunity should do their utmost to find themselves landing into Ireland via Donegal Airport.
For the second year in a row, the north-western airport has been named as the airport with the most scenic landing, beating out Barra Airport in Scotland and Nice Aiport in France to retain the top spot.
"The view is spectacular! Mountains on one side and a beautiful rugged coastline dotted with islands and golden sandy beaches running adjacent to the runway," said one voter.
"Most beautiful scenery I ever saw, with the beach on one side with crystal clear water and Mount Errigal standing tall on the other side.
"There is nowhere as lovely as the wild rugged beauty of unspoiled Donegal."
"Too often travelers hurry through the journey to get to their destination; this poll encourages those to stop, take a look through their aircraft window and be awestruck by the joy of flying," said Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly, who ran the survey.
"Donegal's rugged coastal landscapes are truly awe-inspiring as you come into land. There is simply nowhere else like it and its popularity with global travelers is clear."
