Cork Airport Welcomes New Lisbon Route

Cork Airport has welcomed news that Aer Lingus is to commence a new year-round Cork to Lisbon route.

The service from Cork Airport to Lisbon Portela Airport, Portugal’s main international gateway, will commence on October 26 and will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays.

Commenting on the announcement, Cork Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy said, “We welcome the decision by our biggest customer Aer Lingus to commence operations from Cork to Lisbon in response to strong consumer demand for additional flights from Cork Airport.

“This new route will be very popular for leisure and business in both directions. This announcement is an excellent development for Cork Airport and the 2.4 million passengers we serve across the south of Ireland.”

Daragh Hanratty, head of aviation marketing at Cork Airport, added, “We look forward to working closely with Aer Lingus to ensure the success of this latest new route to their network out of Cork. We will continue to seek out further opportunities for expansion where demand can be proven.

“The people who support Cork Airport as Ireland’s second largest international airport constantly request greater connectivity, and this decision by Aer Lingus is a welcome boost. We look forward to further passenger growth in 2018 and into 2019.”
