Great news for Cork Airport: the Irish airline Ryanair has just announced its wish to reintegrate the Irish airport… and to invest a budget of 200 million dollars in its redevelopment there.

When Ryanair plans to relaunch in Cork…

The €200 million will be used to open nearly 20 routes to Cork

It must be said that the announcement of the news caused a small earthquake in the airport transport sector. Such a financial investment is sure to put a smile on the face of the Irish tourism and transport industry… until now left behind by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ryanair is now fully asserting its ambitions. Although weakened by huge dry losses (also caused by the pandemic), Ryanair intends to fully restore its pre-pandemic traffic at Cork airport.

This investment will allow to ensure more than 20 connections to the Irish airport by the summer of 2022 and to create thousands of jobs…

An effective way to revitalize the airport activity of the Irish city, and boost tourism throughout Ireland!

This is excellent news, especially since Cork airport is currently closed for work. It should reopen by November 22, 2021, with new runways and a new capacity to accommodate Ryanair’s fleet on its tarmac.

This will be an opportunity for travelers with legs to travel more easily to the West of Ireland, to discover County Cork, Co. Kerry, Co. Clare or Co. Galway. As for prices, they should follow the same logic as before the pandemic: as usual, Ryanair is counting on low-cost fares to boost its activity. This will please travelers who want to go to Ireland without breaking the bank!

What are you waiting for ? A little trip to the Ring of Kerry or Connemara ?
