Cork Airport Ready To Welcome Over 102,000 Passengers Over Easter

Cork Airport is ready to welcome over 102,000 passengers over the Easter period.


Over 45,000 passengers will travel over the Easter bank holiday weekend alone.

This Friday (7 April), Cork Airport will welcome the return of the twice-weekly service to Zurich, Switzerland - operated by Edelweiss, on behalf of SWISS International Air Lines. The service, which will operate on Fridays and Mondays, will provide direct connectivity to the largest city in Switzerland, complete with its Old Town, cultural scene, and location along the Limmat River, on the shores of Lake Zurich.

Looking forward to the Easter period, managing director at Cork Airport Niall MacCarthy said, "We’re in full swing for the summer at Cork Airport and we expect to welcome more than 2.5 million passengers this year. We have lots of new routes, but most importantly, the convenience of using Cork Airport and the friendliness of our staff is our unique proposition to passengers right across the South of Ireland. Happy Easter to all our passengers."
