Aer Arann has announced that it
will serve Cork – Glasgow (Prestwick) from 28th October 2008.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Aer Arann to take over an existing
route and develop it by offering our unique brand of quality service” said
Fergal Barry, Aer Arann’s Commercial Director.
“We also very happy to ensure there is no break in service for regular
customers as we introduce a second Scottish service from Cork”, said Mr Barry.
Kevin Cullinane, Aviation Marketing Manager at Cork Airport, said “This
is great news for Cork Airport as we are acutely aware of the importance of
ensuring that the Munster region continues to enjoy excellent connectivity to a
key business and tourist destination. Over the past week the business community
in Cork and the Greater Munster region has sought to have a new service in place
from the end of October next and we are delighted that Aer Arann will provide
them and their customers with an enhanced service to and from Glasgow as well as
Edinburgh going forward. I believe that Aer Arann is not only meeting that
requirement but exceeding it by giving our mutual Customers quality service and
enhanced connectivity to the Scottish market while at the same time providing
direct access to the South of Ireland for our Celtic cousins."
Mark Rodwell, Chief Executive of Glasgow Prestwick Airport, said “We
are delighted with Aer Arann’s announcement today that they will operate flights
between Glasgow Prestwick and Cork.
“We have a strong relationship with them and hope this new service will
build on the success of their current service to Donegal. It will maintain our
strong coverage of the Irish market, which has always been popular with Scottish
business and leisure travellers due to the short flight times and huge variety
of attractions on offer. “Cork is not only an ideal city break location due to
the shopping and nightlife on offer, but venture outside the city and you will
find some of Ireland’s best scenery. County Cork is also renowned for its
excellent seafood restaurants.
“We are confident this new service will also cater for the inbound market as
Ayrshire and Glasgow are popular destinations among the Irish with a wide range
of attractions including golf, shopping and exciting nightlife.”
The following is the planned schedule for the Cork (ORK) Glasgow (PIK)
