GALLERY: The 10 airports Irish people fly to most often

Visa Europe has been crunching the stats on travel bookings – and compiled this list of the ten most regular destinations.

AS AN ISLAND nation, it’s not all that surprising that Irish people tend to be among the world’s most prolific air travellers.

But which airports are the Irish most likely to fly to when they’re going abroad – and why?

Visa Europe has been crunching data scraped from debit and credit card transactions so far this year and come up with this list of the ten airport that you’re most likely to find an Irish person flying to.

Visa suggests the popularity of the Premier League, the Six Nations and the Heineken Cup may have had a role in the bookings – and we think they’re probably right.
