Cork-Dublin Business Travel Survey

Cork-Dublin Business Travel Survey

Following the significant concerns expressed by Cork Chamber last week following Ryanair’s announcement that it is to withdraw its Cork-Dublin service from October, Conor Healy, Cork Chamber Chief Executive yesterday highlighted the Chamber’s call for an urgent meeting of regional stakeholders to discuss the issue and announced the launch of a business travel survey, which sees Cork Airport, Dublin Chamber and Cork Chamber join forces to assess the demand for air services between Cork and Dublin.

Conor Healy said: “This short survey assesses the travel needs for air connectivity between Ireland’s two largest cities, and will help enhance the business case to those airlines who remain open to the proposition of a Cork-Dublin/Dublin-Cork route.

“The successful economic development of Cork to date has often been attributed to the strong partnership model that exists between regional stakeholders and, with this in mind, Cork Chamber has called an urgent meeting of the relevant regional stakeholders to ensure that everything is done to secure a new carrier for the Cork-Dublin route as quickly as possible.”

He concluded by urging all companies to complete the survey, which is being circulated widely and is also available on the Chamber website, www.corkchamber.ie.
