Over 149,000 passengers are expected to travel through Cork Airport this Christmas and New Year, with Friday December 21 expected to be the busiest day for arrivals, according to a new forecast on the airport's website.
The numbers forecasted to arrive and depart Cork Airport over the Christmas and New Year period are up 3.5% compared with the same time last year.
"Getting People To Where They Need To Be"
The airport's head of communications, Kevin Cullinane, commented, "Cork Airport plays a vital role in getting people to where they need to be for the Christmas season. With new routes and extended services this winter season, the airport offers greater choice and flexibility for those choosing to fly through Cork Airport.
"While December 21 is expected to be the busiest day at the airport for arrivals, as we welcome passengers home for their Christmas holiday, the busiest day for departures is Friday December 28. This will also be the busiest day overall, for both arrivals and departures."
