A nice Christmas present. Or should we say… Swiss-mas present?
Cork Airport has received yet another boon this morning as SWISS Airlines have announced a new route from Cork to Geneva to begin on December 19th.
Available to book from tomorrow (November 5th), the once-weekly flight will be served with a 145-seat Airbus A220-300. The flight will depart Geneva Airport at 12:10 local time, arrive at Cork Airport at 13:25, depart from Cork Airport again at 14:10 and arrive in Geneva at 17:20. The flight will operate every Sunday until March 6th.
Brian Gallagher, Head of Aviation and Commercial Business Development at Cork Airport welcomed the announcement, saying: “Our team at Cork Airport has been working really hard to rebuild our business post-pandemic and listening to our customers in terms of travel needs.
“People across the South of Ireland want winter ski options from Cork Airport and are we are delighted to respond with this new Swiss service. Geneva Airport is placed in the middle of Europe’s best-known skiing region, the Alps, and there are plenty of great ski options within a short distance of the airport.
“Cork Airport will bounce back with new airlines and new services and we look forward to more positive announcements in the weeks ahead”.
