Cork Airport announces new routes to Southampton and Leeds Bradford

Cork Airport announces that Aer Lingus Regional operated by Stobart Air is set to launch new routes to Southampton and Leeds Bradford next summer.

As well as the new routes, Stobart Air has announced it will be increasing capacity on three existing routes; Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle and will have a third aircraft based at the airport. The Cork – Southampton route will operate five days a week every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be three weekly services on the new Cork – Leeds Bradford route operating every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport welcomed the new routes: “2015 has been a fantastic year so far for the airport in terms of new routes and new airlines. Today’s news is further evidence that Cork Airport is now well on track to return to annualised growth next year and brings to six the number of new routes announced in recent months for the region. The announcement brings the total number of destinations served to the UK to 14 and the new routes to the South East Coast and North Midlands means we have the UK covered in terms of easy and affordable access.”

Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, is expected to carry 275,000 passengers through Cork Airport in 2015. Today’s news means that the airline will increase this by 22 per cent next year to 335,000 passengers.

Apart from the obvious football connections, both cities have plenty to offer visitors. Situated on the South East coast of England, Southampton is a popular summer destination with plenty to see and do including the annual Southampton Boat Show, Sea-City Museum, Southampton Common as well as the chance to Walk the Walls of the city taking in the famous Bargate.

Leeds, the UK’s 3rd largest city is known for its nightlife, shopping and sport. Leeds also boasts fantastic Georgian and Victorian architecture and the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors are all in easy reach of the city. York with its wide range of historic and cultural attractions is only 40 minutes drive.

Seats for Southampton and Leeds Bradford will be on sale from just €24.99. To book your seat go to www.aerlingus.com.
