Almost 50,000 passengers are expected to fly to and from Cork Airport this coming Easter Bank Holiday weekend, with Good Friday, March 29 expected to be the busiest day of the weekend.


With cold and wet weather conditions lasting for an extended period across Ireland, many will take the opportunity of the extended Easter break to jet off to warmer, sunnier climes like Alicante, Lanzarote, Tenerife, Valencia, Malaga, Faro, and Palma de Mallorca. City breaks from Cork to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Seville, Rome, and Paris remain immensely popular at this time of year.


Cork Airport’s Summer Schedule swings into action this weekend and flights will operate until the end of October. Over the coming days, flights to Alghero (Sardinia), Bordeaux, Frankfurt, Girona, Milan Bergamo, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Pisa, Reus, and Zurich will recommence. Ryanair will operate its flights to Venice throughout the summer and next week will switch from Venice Treviso to Venice Marco Polo Airport.


Looking forward to the Easter period, Barry Holland, Cork Airport’s Communications Manager said: ““Easter is a busy time of year and this weekend, it also coincides with the start of our very busy summer schedule here at Cork Airport. We’re looking forward to welcoming almost 50,000 passengers, flying in and out. Over the coming days, we’ll see the resumption of some of our most popular European summer services which will run for the season until the end of October. You'd be hopping mad to miss out on a great break from Cork Airport this Easter or Summer.”
