Cork Airport Welcomes New Swiss Service to Zurich

Cork Airport is flying high following the announcement that Swiss International Air is to commence a new Cork – Zurich service that will operate throughout the summer season from 2nd June to 29th September 2017.

Swiss will operate a Bombardier C Series aircraft, which carries 110 passengers. The service will fly weekly each Friday from June and will increase to twice weekly, including a Monday flight, throughout July and August. The new route means an additional 6,750 passengers in 2017.

We have been working with them for some time to secure the new route for the south of Ireland. We believe that the route has great potential from both an outbound as well as an inbound market. Switzerland has been a target market of ours, primarily due to its close business and pharmaceutical connections with the region, but also we have the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East, both right on our doorstep.

“The Swiss capital has plenty to offer those flying from Cork: Munster outbound tourists can take in the city and nearby alpine sights. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with yet another new airline starting operations in Cork in 2017.”
