Aug 09, 2016

The Winter season at Cork Airport will see new services and increased frequencies on existing routes.

Cork Airport has welcomed the latest release from the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) which sees the airport register the strongest monthly growth in aircraft movements for the three national airports. 

Commercial terminal flights at Cork Airport were up by 14.4% in July over the same month last year with an average of 68 daily movements. This compares to growth of 7.6% at Dublin Airport and a decrease of 1.3% at Shannon Airport.

Cork Airport’s Managing Director Niall MacCarthy welcomed the latest figures. “We are delighted with the strong growth in commercial aircraft movements once again in Cork in July, at 14.4% the strongest growth of all three national airports. We are now working hard to ensure that growth continues right through the winter months.”

“In that regard, we are delighted to announce further growth at Cork for this Winter Season beginning this October Bank Holiday weekend through to next March. This represents further choice for Munster people this winter and further opportunity for foreign inbound tourism. We are now working on other opportunities for Summer 2017 and will announce these later this year,” added Mr MacCarthy.
