Cork Airport sees Highest Passenger Numbers since Pandemic
On Sunday, Cork Airport welcomed a total of 3,483 passengers which is the highest total so far for 2021 and the highest daily total since 15th March 2020. The strong rebound in passengers comes as the airport is about to close for a 10 week period commencing on the 13th September. This is to facilitate rehabilitation works to runway 16/34. Significant restrictions to Runway 07/25 are also anticipated. The declared distances available on Runway 07/25 will be reduced to facilitate the proposed construction works and restricted to limited general aviation operations, SAR, MEDIVAC, HEMS and transplant flights with prior notice. The runway will reopen to commercial traffic on 22nd November at 0200.
