“As Europe and Ireland’s most reliable airline, Ryanair is delighted to announce even more growth for the south-west with our biggest ever Cork schedule, offering 270 weekly flights (+20% vs S’22) across 29 routes, incl. our exciting new La Rochelle, Rome, Seville, Venice Treviso and East Midlands routes for Summer ‘23. Underpinned by our $300m investment in Cork Airport, this record schedule offers a huge selection of sunny hotspots and city break destinations, as well as increased frequencies across popular routes like Alicante, Faro, Liverpool and Palma.

“Ryanair’s commitment to growing traffic and increasing connectivity to Cork means it will become the first Irish state airport to fully restore pre-pandemic traffic levels. The further 20% growth Ryanair will deliver to Cork next summer is fantastic news for Ryanair customers in the south-west and is a direct result of Cork’s long-term commitment to maintain competitive airport charges, which provide the cost certainty required for Ryanair to invest and grow in the region and continue to drive economic growth, jobs, and much-needed inbound tourism.”

Also commenting on Ryanair’s Summer 2023 Cork Expansion, Cork Airport’s Managing Director, Niall MacCarthy, added,

“I am thrilled to announce Ryanair’s biggest ever Summer Schedule, in this their 35th year operating at Cork Airport. With over 1.4 million seats on sale next summer, ranging from vibrant city destinations like Rome, Valencia, Venice, Bordeaux, Milan, Edinburgh, London, and Liverpool to exciting sun destinations such as Faro, Malaga, Lanzarote, Sardinia, Alicante and many more, there is a superb route offering from Cork Airport with Ryanair. Everyone who flies from Cork Airport knows how convenient, quick, reliable, and friendly the service is. We recommend passengers to bear that convenience in mind when booking family holidays in 2023. For passengers across Munster and the South of Ireland, Cork Airport offers the best choice of destinations next summer. I would like to thank Ryanair for its continued commitment to Cork Airport and we look forward to continuing our very strong business relationship, to improve the route offering from Munster’s busiest airport.”
