It’s the busiest fortnight of the year.
Thousands of Munster passengers are getting ready to jet off on holiday ahead of the bank holiday, with Cork Airport reporting a 17 percent increase in passenger traffic compared to this time last year.
The airport is preparing to welcome over 62,000 passengers over the weekend, with Friday, August 4th anticipated to be the busiest day.
“We continue to pride ourselves on the experience which we offer passengers every day at Cork Airport,” said Cork Airport MD, Niall MacCarthy.
“We aim to offer a calm, friendly, and efficient experience with parking still conveniently available, close to the terminal, and to get you on your journey and back on time.
“Please arrive at least 90 minutes before your flight to get your holiday off to a good start and don’t carry liquids in excess of 100ml in your hand luggage,” he added.
New security procedures
Passengers should also note that the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has introduced new passenger security procedures relating to certain items of clothing and footwear.
Passengers wearing oversize garments such as hoodies, loose jackets, sweaters, and shoes/boots above the ankle will be asked to remove those items and place them in a tray provided.
