New winter routes announced

Wednesday, 6th March, 2019 4:35pm

Four new destinations have been added to Cork Airport’s winter schedule for 2019.

Ryanair has extended its summer services to Alicante, Budapest, Malta and Poznan twice-weekly for the forthcoming winter season.

The airline’s passenger numbers Leeside are forecast to increase by 17 per cent this year, the largest increase among all Irish international airports, as Cork Airport enters its fourth year of consecutive growth.

It is estimated that 1.2 million Ryanair customers will pass through Cork Airport this year, with 2.6 million forecast to travel through the airport in total in 2019, an eight per cent rise overall on last year.

Speaking of his delight at the extended winter routes last week, Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport, said: “The extension of services to these destinations means that our customers across the south of Ireland will have even greater choice this coming winter, whether that is for a winter sun getaway or a European city break.

“It will also benefit the region as a whole, with inbound visitor potential to key attractions such as the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland's Ancient East.

“Our business development team continues to work with Ryanair, and our other partner airlines, on further positive announcements, ensuring the continued growth of Cork Airport.”

Over 50 routes are now on offer from Cork Airport across the UK, continental Europe and the east coast of the USA.
