Tweets of the day:

@Justin_Burns1  IATA head of ecargo Guillaume Drucy says @IATA is working towards standardised digital processes #AirCargoEurope @transport_messe.

@AlanHealy Pat O’Connell of the English Market says people in Cork can’t be blamed for being frustrated about issues at the airport. #cbacorkairport.

@AlanHealy DAA chief says airlines are not confident the numbers are there for a return of Dublin to Cork flight. #cbacorkairport.

@AlanHealy Cork Airport MD “We have been slaughtered in the media and in public opinion about the decline in passenger numbers.” #cbacorkairport.

@CorkAirport  Niall MacCarthy, Cork Airport MD: “In 2016 we will be looking to grow passenger numbers”. #cbacorkairport.

@CorkAirport Group CEO Kevin Toland: “Social media is faster and sharper and gains more attention.” #cbacorkairport.

@CorkAirport Group CEO Kevin Toland: “We need a Cork Dublin route. Important for business”. #cbacorkairport.

@CorkAirport Group CEO Kevin Toland: “First preference – joining up and working together. Second preference – a financial strategy.” #cbacorkairport.

@CorkAirport Group CEO Kevin Toland: “We need to effectively identify the opportunities and grab them. Like the Wild Atlantic Way.”  #cbacorkairport.

@CorkAirport Niall MacCathy, Cork Airport MD: “We’re setting up a ‘Cork Night’ for airline buyers. Great potential.” #cbacorkairport.

@FlightAcesHigh Our @Ryanair poll shows that the carrier is still a bit “Marmite”. 41% saying cheap & nasty, 38% cheap & cheerful.

@kingfixer #CBACorkAirport the challenge is proving demand.. Aerlingus will open new German route if Cork Airport can prove demand.

@NiamhcMurphy Negativity about @CorkAirport is having a negative impact on demand itself says Niall MCCarthy  #CBACorkAirport.

@NiamhcMurphy #Cork as a brand is not know in German markets – our big competitor is Dublin #CBACorkAirport.

@NiamhcMurphy If you google @CorkAirport all you hear about is debt – we need to start talking positively about the airport #CBACorkairport.

@NiamhcMurphy If you have one product you don’t have 7 people marketing it – we need one marketing body #CBACorkAirport.
