Record Seat Capacity Provided By Airline And Tour Operator Partners For Peak Travel Season
With the peak summer travel season fast approaching, Cork Airport today unveiled its exciting summer schedule. More than two million seats are available from Cork to more than 50 destinations across the UK and Europe for summer 2013. That’s almost four seats for every man, woman and child in Cork city and county!
Ryanair recently added a further six routes to those already announced before Christmas for its popular summer 2013 schedule including Milan, Bordeaux, Carcassonne, Girona, La Rochelle and Pisa. These are in addition to the five extra scheduled services by Ryanair this summer to Gdansk, Krakow, Vilnius, Warsaw and Wroclaw.
Ryanair’s eleven routes alone will mean an additional 130,000 seats from Cork Airport this summer, compared with the same period last year. The end result is the availability of a total of 717,000 seats with the low cost carrier.
Commenting on Cork Airport’s summer schedule announcement, Airport Director Niall MacCarthy, said: “We have worked very closely with our airline and tour operator partners since last summer to ensure we can offer an expansive array of destinations and additional services this summer. The availability of two million seats from Cork Airport this summer is testament to the strong demand from this catchment area on both business and leisure routes during the peak summer season. Airlines and tour operators always try to match supply to demand and this is very evident in today’s announcement," he added.
In a related development, Aer Lingus will operate daily services to Faro and Malaga this summer, as well as increasing the frequency on its service to Barcelona from three to four times a week. This means Aer Lingus will provide 1.1 million seats from Cork Airport this summer!
A delightful getaway to sun drenched Turkey will be made easy thanks to Turkish holiday specialists, Wings Abroad which will offer increased capacity on its Izmir service, commencing on May 12th and continuing until September 29th.
