You’re not on your holliers yet, but it’s a step in the right direction.
Cork Airport has restarted operating routes to several European cities, in compliance with current travel guidelines.
International travel from Ireland for non-essential purposes remains forbidden until 19 July, but flights are operating out of Cork Airport for those travelling for essential purposes. This week, Cork Airport will resume flying to destinations in Spain, the United Kingdom and Poland.
Next month, flights to Malaga, Faro (Portugal) and Malta will resume, as well as a new route to Frankfurt, which begins at the end of this month.
In a tweet posted today, the airport said: “Welcome back Alicante, Stansted, Luton, Wroclaw with @Ryanair & Malaga, Faro & Malta in July. We warmly welcome @Lufthansa to @CorkAirport commencing a service to Frankfurt on June 25.
“Also @AirFranceis restarting on July 14 to Paris & SWISS restarting on July 18 to Zurich.”

In a statement issued last month, the airport said: “Cork Airport will continue to work with our airline customers, Government agencies and other stakeholders in relation to the plans for a more widespread re-opening of air travel.
“We will also be working to restore the vital connectivity that the South of Ireland has lost over the past 14 months. The Irish economy, which is one of the most open in the world, is hugely dependent on trade, tourism and foreign direct investment (FDI).
“In line with Government guidelines, Cork Airport has remained open throughout the pandemic facilitating the import and export of essential medical supplies and cargo, search and rescue missions, medical evacuations and transplant flights.
“Throughout the pandemic, the health and welfare of our passengers and our employees has been our key focus and that continues to be the case.”
