Tweets of the day:
@BHayesCurtin Kos adds that new aircraft will offer new options from Cork as the runway is quite short for some contemporary aircraft.
@BHayesCurtin Kos is asked if he has talked to Michael O’Leary. Says Ryanair has 18 routes in Cork and why shouldn’t passengers fly on to US?.
@BHayesCurtin Kos said on some routes they see 70% US travellers which is strange as they are European airline. Expects majority US on Cork flights.
@BHayesCurtin Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kos says that thanks to lengthy struggle to get these TA flights from Cork, everyone in US has now heard of Norwegian!.
@gillupton1 IAG boss Willie Walsh says there are less bankers flying upfront but filling seats are those in pharma, biotech & technology. #bizTravel.
