Madrid is the latest hotspot available from Cork Airport this Summer.

The newest Spanish service will be operated by Iberia’s Group low-cost carrier, Iberia Express, twice-weekly, every Saturday and Wednesday, from Cork Airport. Flights will operate from the 18th of June until September, ensuring sun seekers from the South will have even more choice this summer. Visitors to the Spanish capital will also be able to fly via Madrid to many of Iberia Group’s destinations in Spain, Marrakech in Morocco and Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Montevideo, Sao Paulo or Santiago de Chile in Latin America. Anyone planning their summer getaway can book now as tickets are on sale from today at iberia.com

Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport said: “This is more fantastic news for passengers from Munster and follows the news earlier this week that Menorca has been added to our bumper summer ’16 schedule. Just like Cork, Madrid is a beautiful city well known for its culture, shopping, sport events, artistic offerings and lively nightlife. It’s also very easy to reach other popular places in Spain from Madrid, right in the heart of the country.”

Silvia Mosquera, Chief Commercial Officer of Iberia Express, commented: “We’re delighted to launch our first ever flights from Cork. Our customers will be able to fly from Cork to Madrid and onto other Iberia destinations at competitive prices. We will also make travel easier from Spain to Cork, which is a very popular destination for both tourists and Spaniards learning English.”
