More than 56,500 passengers are expected to pass through the airport this weekend, as the summer holiday season gets underway in earnest.
The busiest day of the bank holiday weekend will be Friday, June 2nd and this weekend’s passenger figures indicate an increase of 13 percent on the June Bank Holiday 2022 and a three percent increase on the June Bank Holiday in 2019.
The new Ryanair twice-weekly summer services to Seville and La Rochelle will commence on June 1st and June 4th respectively, while Ryanair has also announced it is increasing the frequency of the Cork to East Midlands service from two to three times weekly
“We encourage anyone south of Kildare who hasn’t booked their summer holidays yet, to book through Cork Airport,” said Managing Director at Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy.
“Good value online car parking and a smooth, quick passenger experience are our unique selling points, which we take great pride in delivering to our passengers”.
This weekend’s passengers are advised to arrive at least 90 minutes before their flight is due to depart.
