Ryanair Announce Five New Routes from Cork

Ryanair has announced its largest ever summer schedule from Cork Airport, including five new routes to Seville, La Rochelle, East Midlands, Venice-Treviso, and Rome Fiumicino. Cork Airport has rebounded strongly in its recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and next year expects to welcome over 2.4 million passengers in total. Ryanair will operate 270 flights each week between March and October 2023 and this announcement means that Munster passengers have a superb range of destinations to choose from across the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands direct from Cork Airport.

Along with the new routes announced, Ryanair has announced increased frequencies on other holiday services to Faro, Malaga, Alicante, Palma de Mallorca, Lanzarote, and Barcelona-Reus. Cork Airport currently offers the best Italian connectivity in Munster, and this will be enhanced next summer with services to Rome Fiumicino, Milan Bergamo, Pisa, and Venice Treviso.

Commenting on the announcement, the Managing Director at Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy said, “I am thrilled to announce Ryanair’s biggest ever Summer Schedule, in this their 35th year operating at Cork Airport. With over 1.4 million seats on sale next summer, ranging from vibrant city destinations like Rome, Valencia, Venice, Bordeaux, Milan, Edinburgh, London, and Liverpool to exciting sun destinations such as Faro, Malaga, Lanzarote, Sardinia, Alicante, and many more, there is a superb route offering from Cork Airport with Ryanair. Everyone who flies from Cork Airport knows how convenient, quick, reliable, and friendly the service is. We recommend passengers to bear that convenience in mind when booking family holidays in 2023.

Speaking at Cork Airport, at the launch of the Ryanair 2023 Summer Schedule, the CEO at Ryanair DAC, Eddie Wilson said, “As Europe and Ireland’s most reliable airline, Ryanair is delighted to announce even more growth for the south-west with our biggest ever Cork schedule, offering 270 weekly flights (+20% vs S’22) across 29 routes, incl. our exciting new La Rochelle, Rome, Seville, Venice Treviso, and East Midlands routes for Summer ‘23. Underpinned by our $300m investment in Cork Airport, this record schedule offers a huge selection of sunny hotspots and city break destinations, as well as increased frequencies across popular routes like Alicante, Faro, Liverpool, and Palma. Ryanair’s commitment to growing traffic and increasing connectivity to Cork means it will become the first Irish state airport to fully restore pre-pandemic traffic levels. The further 20% growth Ryanair will deliver to Cork next summer is fantastic news for Ryanair customers in the south-west and is a direct result of Cork’s long-term commitment to maintain competitive airport charges, which provide the cost certainty required for Ryanair to invest and grow in the region and continue to drive economic growth, jobs, and much-needed inbound tourism.”
