Various share capital fund raising programmes were undertaken and together with grant assistance from various statutory bodies over the years, the airport has developed from a runway of 1,090m x 23m commissioned in 1969 to a runway of 1239m x 30m commissioned in 1989 and a new runway 2,000m x 45m was opened in May 1994.On 25/8/69 the first aircraft to land at Kerry was piloted by Capt. Milo Carr of the Dept. of Transport and Power. For a number of years the only aircraft using the aerodrome were light private aircraft and the occasional charter or cargo flight and also extensive parachuting took place. The first scheduled service was inaugurated in July 1979 using an Islander aircraft operated by Aer Arann.
