Cork Airport Launches New Route To Verona For Summer 2017

May 25, 2017

May 27 next sees Volotea's new service take off to the home of 'Romeo and Juliet'.

Cork Airport is delighted to welcome a new airline carrier and route for a busy Summer 2017 schedule.

Spanish low-cost carrier Volotea will launch a new route to the Northern Italian city of Verona starting on Saturday, May 27 next.
Most famous as the home of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, the quiet and picturesque city of Verona offers the best of Italian cuisine, culture and climate. Just one hour away from Venice, Verona offers holidays makers an authentic Italian experience away from the beaten tourist track.
Verona is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city is famous for its Roman and medieval architecture.

Head of Communications at Cork Airport Kevin Cullinane said: “We are delighted to expand our choice of destinations with Volotea, a new scheduled airline partner. We have served Verona before as a charter destination but now travellers in both Munster and Northern Italy will be able to book flights online and this will increase tourism in both directions.

“Unlike Romeo and Juliet’s tragic tale, a trip to Verona has so much to offer passengers from the South of Ireland. Travellers can meander through the winding streets of one of Italy's prettiest cities, all the while enjoying the great food and culture that Italy has to offer”, he added.
The new Cork Airport - Verona-Villafranca Airport service will operate weekly through the summer season until September.
Volotea will fly a Boeing 717 on the route, adding 4,600 seats to the schedule of services for this year.
