Ryanair Launches New Cork-To-Rome Service

A new twice-weekly Ryanair service from Cork Airport to Rome Fiumicino will commence next week.


The new service to Rome will commence on Monday 31 October, with the inaugural flight departing from Cork Airport at 6.15am. The service will operate on Mondays and Fridays.

In addition to the new service to Rome, Ryanair will operate twice-weekly services to Milan Bergamo Airport and Venice Marco Polo Airport. Previously seasonal routes, services to both Milan and Venice will now operate year round. The service to Milan will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays, while the service to Venice will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Cork Airport’s winter schedule will commence this weekend (the October bank holiday weekend) and operate until the end of March 2023. Over the course of the winter season, over 1.1 million seats are available across 27 routes, served by five airlines.


The acting managing director at Cork Airport, Roy O’Driscoll, said, “Amongst the 27 routes available from Cork Airport this winter, the jewel in the crown of our schedule is undoubtedly our new route to Rome, complemented by the continuation of services to Milan and Venice. The enhanced connectivity to some of Italy’s largest cities, each important centres of commerce and tourism, will offer Munster passengers even more fantastic options for a winter getaway.”

The head of Visit Cork, Seamus Heaney, welcomed the enhanced connectivity and the benefits that it will bring for tourism in Cork, Munster, and the south of Ireland, saying, “As an island, Ireland needs good air connectivity for the movement of both people and trade. The connectivity between Cork, Milan, Rome and Venice is a positive move for the region, as it opens up great possibilities for Italian visitors to explore Cork and the south of Ireland.”
