The shortlist for The Moodies – the global airport digital, mobile and social media awards was revealed on Friday and Ireland West Airport are delighted to have been shortlisted for three global awards. The Moodies, which reward best practice in social and digital media among airports and airport retailers globally, has shortlisted Ireland West Airport, one of only two Irish airports to be shortlisted, in three categories for ‘Best use of Facebook’, the only Irish airport to make the shortlist in this category, ‘Best Use of Paid Social’ for our campaign marking the opening of the new M17 motorway from Tuam to Gort and for the ‘Best overall Use of Social & Digital Media by an airport’. The overall winners will be announced later this month.


Commenting on the news, Donal Healy (Head of Marketing & Communications Ireland West Airport) said, “The airport puts a major focus on Digital and Social media channels which helps the airport punch well above our weight on the international stage. To be nominated for three global awards and to be alongside some of the biggest airports in the world reinforces our belief that digital and social media channels offer the perfect platforms for smaller businesses to compete alongside major international players and in many instances outperform them. We are delighted to have been recognised for our work in this area with three nominations and in particular in relation to our use of Facebook, which has seen us shortlisted as the only Irish airport in this category, alongside major international airports such as Heathrow Airport and Amsterdam Schipol.
