Queenstown airport passed over in world’s most scenic landings

For the third year in a row, a landing strip on Ireland’s rugged northwest coast has been named the most beautiful place to arrive by air.

Donegal airport in Carrickfinn was found to be the world’s most scenic landing strip, in a survey of 6000 pilots and aviation fanatics. Voters fell in love with the approach which is on a natural island spit.

“You can see all the islands, beautiful beaches. Errigal and the Rosses on the approach,” wrote one aviator on the survey conducted by PrivateFly. Howeer, it was the guaranteed “warm welcome” of the locals when deplaning that clinched it for the coastal airstrip.
