Cork Airport is gearing up for what is expected to be one of the busiest days since the new terminal opened in August 2006.

Over 3,000 Munster rugby fans will travel through Cork Airport next weekend as they fly out to support Munster in their bid to win the Heineken Cup in Cardiff on Saturday, May 24th.

To ensure that fans get the special day off to a great start, management at Cork Airport is issuing the following advice:

All special rugby charters on May 24th will operate from the Main Terminal building.

As traffic is expected to be extremely busy, please arrange to be dropped to the Airport, if at all possible. If you must bring your car, please car pool and use either the short term multi-storey or long-term car parks.

Please allow plenty of time for check-in. Airport management advises passengers to arrive at Cork Airport a minimum of 90 MINUTES before their scheduled departure time.

Check In for flights will close 40 MINUTES before the scheduled departure time of the Rugby Charter flights.

Please bring all relevant travel documentation with you to the Airport. Intending passengers are reminded to bring their own valid Passport, which must be presented at check-in.

Please pay attention to all announcements advising of flight details to ensure that there are no delays during the morning.

Passengers are requested to comply with all security and safety measures at Cork Airport, which are implemented for the safety and security of all passengers.

Please limit the number of carry-on items, as this will ensure timely departure. In this regard, please limit carry-on items to one small backpack.

Munster Supporters’ flags are most welcome. However, any item which has the ability to be adapted for causing injury to another passenger will be confiscated.

All passengers are asked to bear in mind that the Terminal building will be extremely busy on Saturday due to a very busy schedule of regular and holiday charter flights. To ensure a safe and comfortable journey, we ask all passengers to follow the instructions of our uniformed ground staff at the terminal to prevent overcrowding.

There are Travel Value Shopping, ATM, phone top up, internet access, café, bar, toilet, bookshop and newsagent facilities provided in the Departures Area after the Passenger Security Area.

We wish all our passengers a safe journey on May 24th, and enjoy the match!
