New Ryanair Seville Service Takes Off from Cork this Week
Ryanair will launch a new service from Cork to Seville in southern Spain with a twice-weekly service with flights on Mondays and Thursdays during the summer. It will be the airline’s tenth service from Cork for the summer season. From the mesmerising architecture of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Seville Cathedral and the Real (Royal) Alcázar to the city’s world-renowned flamenco scene and vibrant festivals, Seville promises an unforgettable escape into the heart of Andalucian charm. Seville is also a gateway to the captivating region of Andalucía, renowned for its scenic landscapes, spectacular beaches, picturesque hill towns, and an array of culinary delights. The cities of Jerez de la Frontera, Córdoba, and Cadiz are all within reach of Seville and each offers its own unique perspective of Andalucian culture. The ten Spanish destinations direct from Cork Airport are the six to mainland Spain (Seville, Malaga, Alicante, Valencia, Girona, Reus), three to the Canary Islands (Lanzarote, Tenerife, Gran Canaria), and one to the Balearic Islands (Palma de Mallorca).
Commenting on the new service, the Communications Manager at Cork Airport, Barry Holland said, “Seville is described as one of Spain’s most alluring and attractive cities and is a wonderful addition to the excellent range of destinations available direct from Cork Airport this summer. We know how much our passengers love new destinations to visit and new cities to explore. We’re confident that this new Seville route will be a popular one with customers from across Munster and beyond. This summer, passengers from the South of Ireland can choose from 10 different Spanish destinations direct from Cork Airport for a summer holiday.”

Also commenting was Director at the Spanish Tourism Office in Ireland, Rubén López Pulido added, “Seville is the capital of Andalucía and is a city that really leaves its mark beyond the grandeur of its monuments, the charm of areas such as Triana or the scent of jasmine in its squares while Spanish guitar music resound and echoes along its streets. With this new route, Irish people have the opportunity to not only continue enjoying the world class enogastronomy of the city and the region but also discover new experiences in Seville with such different events such as the Latin Grammy Awards next November or the women’s Davis Cup, the Billie Jean King Cup.”
