Dublin Airport’s Own Brand of Honey Nect-Air, Now Available in Dublin Airport Lounges
Bees from hives on Dublin Airport lands have produced their first batch of honey.
The honey, which is harvested from four hives housing more than a quarter of a million Irish dark native honey bees on airport land, has been named Nect-Air and now forms part of the menu in Dublin Airport’s own executive lounges.
The four hives are located on Dublin Airport lands beside the airport campus. Following the successful trial, which produced the first crop of Nect-Air, Dublin Airport now plans to install additional bee hives at other locations on campus and increase honey production.
Dublin Airport’s bee hives were installed with the help and advice of the Fingal North Dublin Beekeepers’ Association and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. The hives are tended to by local beekeeper Colm Fogarty who has 15 years’ experience in beekeeping.
