Reopening of Ryanair Base at Cork Airport a Huge Vote of Confidence

Commenting on the announcement that Ryanair is to reopen its base at Cork Airport, Conor Healy, CEO of Cork Chamber said:
“Today’s announcement by Ryanair that it is to reopen its base at Cork Airport is a huge vote of confidence in the region. It will help to position Cork on the road to economic recovery as the airline facilitates a great deal of business and tourism not only in Cork but throughout the entire southern region. Today’s news means that Cork Airport can begin to build on the momentum and success it was experiencing prior to the pandemic when passenger numbers were reaching record highs and the airport itself was Ireland’s fastest growing airport."

Mr Healy continued: "As the country begins to emerge from the effects of COVID19, Cork Airport will once again become a key driver of the Cork economy ensuring strong regional and national connectivity. It is essential now that government continues to robustly support Cork Airport through Traffic Recovery Support Scheme and marketing funding. Cork Chamber welcomes today’s significant announcement and the anticipated level of activity it will bring to the airport.”
