Cork Airport is advising passengers to arrive early ahead of a busy Easter weekend
Going somewhere nice over the bank holiday?
If your plans involve a spot of air travel, Cork Airport has issued some advice you should probably take note of before you pack your bags.
The airport is advising all passengers to arrive at least 90 minutes before their flight and go directly to the security screening area once checked in.
Over 70,000 passengers will travel through Cork Airport this Easter holiday weekend, with over 50 routes on offer including the new Aer Lingus service to Nice and summer flights to Zurich, Switzerland with SWISS, which both commence today.

Passengers are also availing of Ryanair’s new twice weekly routes to Poznań, Budapest and Malta, which all kicked off earlier this month. The airline’s new Cork – London Luton service, launched last October, is also running daily.
If you’re dropping someone to the airport this weekend, Cork Airport has introduced some new rules for motorists and passengers.
There are new charges in place for those who linger a little too long in the new Set Down Lane.
Departing guests can enjoy 15 minutes free to “Kiss and Fly” and a further 15 minutes free-of-charge in the car parks. That’s 30 minutes in which to unload your luggage and say your goodbyes on the forecourt.
The next 16-20 minutes will be charged at €3, with increasing rates applying the longer you stay in the set down area.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
