Flying home for Christmas?
With over 119,000 passengers expected to travel through Cork Airport this Christmas and New Year, passengers have been advised to arrive at least 90 minutes before their scheduled flight as staff prepare for two of the busiest days in the festive calendar.
Friday, December 27th will be the busiest day for arrivals, while the busiest day overall for both arrivals and departures is Sunday, December 29th. Those travelling out of the airport are advised to go directly to the security screening area once they have checked in to ensure everyone departs on time.
New set-down lane
Changes have been made to Cork Airport’s internal road layout, which includes the new set-down lane. Drivers can set-down for up to 15 minutes free on the forecourt before tariffs apply.
Whether you’re arriving in Cork or heading off somewhere else, there’ll be plenty of festive cheer to be found in the Airport throughout Christmas, with 1,000 performers hosted in the terminal throughout December.
In total, 28 school and adult choirs — gospel, traditional and orchestral — will take to the stage in the Arrivals Hall, with the Frankfield Gospel Choir finishing the musical programme on Christmas Eve.
