The travel rebound has begun.
Cork Airport is ready to welcome over 60,000 passengers over the Easter period as it kicks off the busiest summer season in three years.
With extremely strong demand for international travel, 2022 is expected to bring a welcome recovery from the impacts of COVID-19.
For April 2022, seat capacity at Cork Airport is at 101% vs April 2019, evidence that Cork Airport is quickly rebounding and is poised to continue the growth trajectory experienced prior to the pandemic as Ireland’s fastest-growing airport.
“We are delighted that this Easter break will see such huge passenger numbers travelling to and from Cork Airport,” said Acting Managing Director, Roy O’Driscoll.
“The Easter break passenger figures are a strong testament to the tremendous work being done at Cork Airport to recover route connectivity. With the return of customer confidence in international air travel, it has been a very positive start to 2022 in which Cork Airport expects to welcome over 2 million passengers.
“This represents a 77% recovery on 2019 and we are committed to continuing this recovery throughout 2022 and beyond.”
Passengers travelling through the airport this weekend are advised to arrive between 90 and 120 minutes before their flight is due to board.
