Ryanair Celebrates 35 Years Of Operations In Cork With Strong Summer Bookings

3 Based Aircraft, 25 Total Summer Routes & 2 New Routes For Winter’22

Ryanair, Europe, and Ireland’s No.1 airline today (22nd June) celebrates the milestone anniversary of 35 years of operations in Cork with strong Summer bookings for Ryanair’s record Cork Summer schedule of 25 routes to exciting destinations such as Alghero, Barcelona, and Venice. Ryanair’s 3 Cork based aircraft, represent an investment of $300M, significantly enhancing the Munster region’s connectivity and supporting 90 highly paid aviation jobs and almost 1,500 indirect jobs at Cork Airport. This connectivity will continue to grow with the recently announced upcoming Winter’22/23 schedule which includes new routes to Newcastle and Rome, both operating twice weekly from the end of October.

It has been 35 years since Ryanair’s first flight took off from Cork to London Luton in 1987, and to mark this important milestone Ryanair is now offering enhanced connectivity to/from Cork. Over 240 weekly flights (over 70 more than pre pandemic), give Cork’s holiday makers an abundance of choice to top European destinations whilst also giving tourism in the Munster region a much-needed boost.

To celebrate today’s anniversary at Cork, Ryanair has launched a limited-time seat sale with fares available from just €21.99 on new routes for travel from August 2022 until October 2022. To avail of these fantastic low fares, customers must log on to www.ryanair.com and book by the 24th of June 2022.

From Cork, Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Jade Kirwan said:

As Ireland’s no.1 airline, Ryanair is delighted to mark the milestone of 35 years of operations from Cork Airport with a strong Summer bookings performance and an abundance of choice for our Cork customers with over 240 weekly flights across 25 routes, including exciting destinations such as Alghero, Barcelona, and Venice.

We have enjoyed a 35 year relationship with Cork Airport and hope that this will continue to strengthen over the coming years. Ryanair are providing increased choice and capacity for Summer’22 and Winter’22 and hope to consolidate for next year but this would wholly depend on Cork Airport not increasing their charges, as other Irish airports have proposed.

To once again support Ireland’s tourism traffic and celebrate today’s milestone, Ryanair has launched a limited-time seat sale with fares available from just €21.99 for travel from August’22 until October’22, which must be booked by the 24th of June 2022. To avail of these fantastic low fares, which will be snapped up quickly, customers must log on to www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.”

Cork Airport’s Acting Managing Director, Roy O’Driscoll said:

“We’re particularly delighted to celebrate 35 years of Ryanair operations at Cork Airport. With 27 scheduled services this year, 2022 has really shown the growth trajectory that Ryanair are on in Cork and across their route network. We’re delighted with the winter schedule announced today which will see the extension of a number of summer routes into the winter but in particular, the addition of Rome and Newcastle.”
