Over 119,000 People To Pass Through Cork Airport This Christmas

Cork Airport is set to play host to more than 119,000 passengers over the coming Christmas period.

The busiest day forecast for arrivals at Cork Airport during this year's festive season is Friday December 27, while the busiest day overall for both arrivals and departures is expected to be Sunday December 29.

Cork Airport has advised outbound travellers to arrive at least 90 minutes prior to their flight and to go directly to the security screening area once they have checked in.


In a statement on Cork Airport's website, the airport's head of communications, Kevin Cullinane, said, "Cork Airport is proud to play such a vital role in getting people to where they need to be over the festive season. With over 50 routes on offer from Cork, including new routes and extended services this winter season, the airport offers greater choice and flexibility for those choosing to fly through Cork Airport.

"2019 has been a fantastic year of growth for Cork Airport, and we extend our thanks to our customers, airlines and stakeholders. In our fourth consecutive year of growth, we saw over 2.6 million passengers travel through the airport this year. This will rise again in 2020 by a further 5%, with routes serving the UK and continental Europe as well as multiple daily long-haul connections worldwide through major European hub airports served from Cork."
