More Choice from Cork Airport as Destinations Continue

It may surprise some but there are now over 50 routes to choose from at Cork Airport, whether it is business or pleasure, city break or sun holiday.

Cork Airport has the biggest and best choice of destinations of any airport outside of Dublin. Munster’s favourite airport will welcome at least nine new routes this year, with a further three in the near future. New routes include Düsseldorf with Aer Lingus, London City, Nantes and La Rochelle (above) with CityJet, Madrid with Iberia Express, Cardiff with Flybe, Southampton and Leeds Bradford with Aer Lingus Regional, as well as Menorca with Lee Travel and Stein Travel.

Norwegian Air will commence its new Cork – Boston service as soon as it receives its foreign carrier permit from the US Department of Transportation. The airline is also committed to launching a Cork – Barcelona service, as well as a New York service soon after.

Cork Airport has the UK fully covered with 14 destinations available from the region. Sun seekers have a choice of 11 destinations in Spain, including favourites such as the Canary Islands, Menorca, Alicante, Malaga and Barcelona. France is also very well served from Cork Airport with six popular tourist sports, as well as top destinations across the rest of Europe.

Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport, said: “Cork Airport has cemented its position as the busiest and best connected international airport in the country after Dublin, serving 2.07 million passengers to over 50 European destinations. We are now firmly established as Ireland’s biggest airport outside of Dublin. There is a greater number of destinations and more seats available from Cork Airport than any other airport in the region so we are unrivalled in terms of choice, whether passengers are traveling for business or pleasure.”
