Cork Airport Looks Forward to New Düsseldorf Route by Aer Lingus

Cork Airport welcomed a number of new routes in the first half of 2015, including the announcement that Aer Lingus is to operate a new Düsseldorf service for summer 2016, commencing twice weekly in May.

Düsseldorf is located in the centre of the Rhine-Ruhr region, Germany’s largest metropolitan area, with a population of about 11 million people.

Welcoming the announcement of the new route, Niall MacCarthy, Cork Airport Managing Director, was delighted that Aer Lingus had added Düsseldorf to its schedule of services and believed it was great news for business and leisure passengers in the region.

Germany is the third largest market for visitors to Ireland and Düsseldorf is also a significant international business and financial centre. Niall MacCarthy expects there to be strong demand for this route from both inbound and outbound passengers.

He outlined Cork Airport’s 50 routes making it the largest airport outside of Dublin and feels the new service to Düsseldorf is further recognition of Cork’s Airport’s status as a key gateway in and out of the South of Ireland.

Düsseldorf will be Aer Lingus’s second German destination from Munster’s favourite airport, as the airline also serves Munich on a year-round basis.
