Kevin Cullinane, Marketing Manager, Cork Airport said “We are delighted to welcome the addition of an Aer Lingus Geneva service to the growing number of destinations served from Cork Airport. As Munster’s principal international gateway to the South of Ireland, Cork Airport continues to expand its network of destinations and growth into Europe in recent years has been led by Aer Lingus.”

Speaking during a visit to Cork to announce the airline’s Winter schedule, Enda Corneille, Corporate Affairs Director, Aer Lingus, said “Today’s announcement demonstrates our continued commitment to the Cork region and the South of Ireland.  We are delighted to extend our offering, giving customers greater choice of destination, quality service and creating new links in inbound tourism”.
