The winner will be announced on June 19 at the ACI Europe/World General Assembly in Brussels.

On the announcement, Cork Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy said, “To be shortlisted this year in the 'Best Airport Under 5 Million Passengers' category is an honour, especially after our win last year.
