Cork Airport Anticipates Busy Easter Weekend

Coinciding with the news that 390,000 travellers are expected to pass through Dublin Airport between Friday, April 19, and Monday, April 22, Cork Airport has revealed that it expects to play host to over 70,000 passengers this Easter weekend.


Cork Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy commented, "We are delighted that this Easter break will see such huge passenger numbers going through our terminal. Earlier this week, the Irish Aviation Authority released positive figures showing the number of flights through Cork Airport were up 9% during the first quarter of 2019, the largest increase of all Irish airports.

"These strong figures are a testament to the ongoing work being done at Cork Airport to increase passenger numbers through greater route options and connectivity. It’s been an incredibly positive start to the year for what will be our fourth year of consecutive growth, and we are committed to continuing this throughout 2019 and beyond."
