Over 50,000 passengers are expected to travel through Cork Airport across the June bank holiday weekend, a 4% 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.
Cork Airport’s Head of Communications, Kevin Cullinane said that the addition of three new routes and services this year has provided greater choice and flexibility for those choosing to fly from the airport.
“This is set to be the busiest June bank holiday weekend for Cork Airport in four years. 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.”
“As this weekend is expected to be the busiest so far this year, we would advise all passengers to arrive at least 90 minutes prior to their flight to avoid any unnecessary delays. Passengers are also strongly advised to go directly to the security screening area once they have checked in,” added Kevin Cullinane.
“Those choosing to drive to Cork Airport can avail of great value parking by booking online in advance and we would also advise that the forecourt is strictly a set-down area only.”
“Cork Airport is the second busiest international airport in Ireland, and we are in a great position to experience further growth this year,” he added.
