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.”
