It’s great news for sun worshippers.
Ryanair has announced the addition of a new twice weekly service from Cork Airport to Faro, Portugal next winter.
The new route is one of nine unveiled by the budget airline today, with seven from Dublin and a new flight to Bristol from Knock.
Ryanair will fly Dublin to Athens, Bari, Santander and Marrakesh twice weekly, Frankfurt twice daily, Luxembourg thrice weekly and Paphos once a week.
“Expanding routes from Cork Airport is always a priority, so we are delighted to see Ryanair giving customers an even wider selection of destinations to choose from during the next winter season,” said Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications at Cork Airport.
The new route comes as Cork Airport is seeing strong passenger growth, with numbers up four percent in 2017, and a further four percent growth forecasted this year.
With temperatures as high at 17C in December, the port city of Faro is also the gateway to the Algarve – perfect for topping up your vitamin D in the cold winter months.
