Bring on November 22nd.
Cork Airport is on track for its November 22nd reopening, as it has now passed the halfway stage of its €40million runway reconstruction.
The massive upgrade project is being chronicled by the airport through ‘documentary episodes’ posted on YouTube. The second instalment of the series was uploaded yesterday.
In the video, airport Managing Director Niall MacCarthy noted that projects of this scale usually take three years, but that the Cork Airport upgrade will take just one year from approval of funding to completion.
The video also gives an insight into the importance of safety on the construction site
Eddie Wilson, CEO of Ryanair DAC, said “It looks like things are, touch wood, returning to normal and it will be great to see this airport back and full and buzzing again.” Ryanair is set to reopen two bases at Cork Airport upon reopening, and will recommence all of its pre-lockdown routes, having added new services to Birmingham, Edinburgh and Venice.
