Ryanair to fly out to three new sun destinations from Cork Airport
The new routes will add 50,000 extra passengers from the region.

RYANAIR IS ADDING three new winter sun destinations to its winter 2016 schedule from Cork Airport.

It will mean weekly service to Gran Canaria and Tenerife and a twice-weekly service to Malaga.

It’s expected that the new routes will add 50,000 extra passengers from the region.

The new services will increase the number of weekly Ryanair flights this coming winter from Cork Airport to over 40, an increase of 11%.

The airline already flies to Lanzarote, Gdansk, Liverpool, London Stansted, London Gatwick and Wroclaw from Cork.

Niall MacCarthy, managing director at Cork Airport welcomed today’s announcement saying: “This is fantastic news for our customers from the region.

The addition of three popular sun destinations for winter means even greater choice from Munster’s best connected airport, making Cork Airport the ideal choice for business and leisure travelers.

“So far this year, Cork Airport has seen a significant increase in our passenger numbers, up by over 10%, making us Ireland’s fastest growing airport.”
