It’s set to be the busiest June Bank Holiday weekend in four years.
More than 50,000 passengers are expected to travel through Cork Airport across the June Bank Holiday, a four percent increase on the same period last year.
The weekend will also see the commencement of seven summer season routes, to destinations across France, Spain and Italy.
“All our summer season routes are now fully operational and there will be an influx of visitors into the region over the holiday weekend as well as those heading abroad for a well-earned holiday.” said Cork Airport’s Head of Communications, Kevin Cullinane.
Six Ryanair routes will kick off this weekend from Cork Airport, with the budget airline serving Milan-Bergamo, Girona, Carcassonne, Reus, Alicante and Bordeaux; while Iberia Express commences direct flights to Madrid and beyond across their network.
The 2018 summer schedule also sees the addition this year of Air France’s new year-round daily Cork to Paris Charles de Gaulle route and the first full summer season for Norwegian’s non-stop direct transatlantic service to Boston Providence, providing Irish travellers easy access to popular holiday US destinations in New England such as Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod and Newport.
