Cork Airport, Ireland’s fastest growing and most punctual international airport, welcomed the announcement that Ryanair has added five new services to its winter 2019 schedule. The airline’s passenger numbers at Cork Airport are also forecast to increase by 17% this year, its largest increase among all Irish international airports.

Cork Airport is in its fourth year of consecutive growth, with passenger numbers set to rise by 8% this year. It is forecast that 2.6 million passengers will travel through Cork Airport in 2019.
