Cork Airport expects over 70,000 passengers to travel through its facilities this Easter holiday weekend, with tomorrow predicted to be the busiest day for both departures and arrivals.

“We are delighted that this Easter break will see such huge passenger numbers going through our terminal," Managing Director at Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy said.

"Earlier this week, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) released positive figures showing the number of flights through Cork Airport was up 9% during the first quarter of 2019, the largest increase of all Irish airports.

“It’s been an incredibly positive start to the year, for what will be our fourth year of consecutive growth and we are committed to continuing this throughout 2019 and beyond.” 

The airport is predicted to grow by a total of 2.6 million passengers this year, and was named Best Airport in Europe in its class (serving under 5 million passengers) by the Airport Council International in 2017.

Passengers travelling during the Easter break are being advised to arrive at least 90 minutes before their flight and go directly to the security screening area once checked in.
