There’s good news for winter sun seekers at Cork Airport today.
Ryanair has announced a new twice-weekly winter service to Alicante, along with extensions to the existing summer services to Budapest (2x), Malta (2x) and Poznan (2x).
An estimated 1.2 million Ryanair customers will pass through Cork Airport this year, up 17% on 2018.
The budget airline’s Irish Winter 2019 schedule boasts 119 routes in total, including two new routes from Dublin to Milan and from Knock to Tenerif and support 12,750 jobs at Cork, Dublin, Shannon, Knock and Kerry airports, as Ryanair grows by 6% in Ireland.
“The extension of services to these destinations means that our customers across the south of Ireland will have even greater choice this coming winter, whether that is for a winter sun getaway, or a European city break.” said Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport.
“It will also benefit the region as a whole, with inbound visitor potential to key attractions such as the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East. Our business development team continues to work with Ryanair, and our other partner airlines, on further positive announcements, ensuring the continued growth of Cork Airport.”
