The acting managing director of Cork Airport, Roy O’Driscoll, said, “Cork Airport is preparing to welcome 43,000 arriving and departing passengers this October bank holiday weekend, many of those arriving for the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival. Cork Airport is particularly pleased to be a proud partner of the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival – one of the most important events on the event calendar on Leeside, and a significant event for the wider Cork economy. [Some] 43,000 passengers represent a 95% recovery on the 2019 October bank holiday weekend. This is a resounding testament to the rebound of passenger traffic at Cork Airport, as we continue our growth as Munster’s busiest and best-connected international airport.”
