New Menorca Service From Cork Next Summer

Nov 24, 2015

You can fly to the beautiful island of Menorca from Cork Airport next summer.

The sun-soaked Balearic island of Menorca is now on the list of fantastic summer destinations from Cork Airport next summer. People looking to get away to the Mediterranean island can book their holiday through Lee Travel or Stein Travel from today.
There will be a weekly flight to Menorca from Cork Airport each Saturday throughout the 12 weeks of Summer 2016 commencing on June 25.  The flights will be operated by CityJet, using a RJ85 98-seater aircraft, which has a wider seat for greater comfort.
“We’re delighted to be able to exclusively offer Menorca to our Munster customers this summer. It is the second largest of the Balearic Islands and is considered a perfect destination for a family getaway as it is less of a party island compared with its neighbours. Menorca is the most tranquil of the islands and thanks to its unspoilt beauty, it offers the chance to discover new charms and experiences,” said Declan O’Connell of Lee Travel.
“We are delighted to see the launch of this new service from Cork to the Balearic island of Menorca. We believe Menorca is a fantastic destination offering a wide range of activities and experiences and with the added attraction of the sun. We wish to thank Lee travel and Stein Travel for making this destination accessible to Irish holidaymakers from Munster,” said Gonzalo Ceballos, Managing Director of the Spanish Tourism Office in Dublin.
Stein Travel’s David Slattery added, “Menorca is a hugely popular destination for sun seekers so we’re expecting a lot of interest in the new service. It is an island with an abundance of clean and quiet beaches and coastline so finding your own piece of paradise to relax and unwind won’t be difficult. And there’s plenty to do for the more adventurous including hiking, kayaking, sailing and biking.”
Menorca is a treat for foodies and the local wineries have recently earned a great reputation. The many waterparks, beaches, walking and cycling trails provide the perfect backdrop for wonderful family memories.
Designated by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve, Menorca promotes ecosystem conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources.
The island is home to some magnificent examples of fortresses, castles and museums and the capital Mahon is situated on the second largest natural deep water port in the world. It really is an island that has something for everyone to ensure a great summer break.
