On Friday (October 29, 2021), Ryanair announced the launch of new twice daily service between Manchester and Cork from December 15, 2021. The carrier recently announced a $200 million investment in Cork Airport with the reopening of their two aircraft base. For winter 2021.22, Ryanair will offer over 650 daily flights from Manchester to more than 72 destinations. Celebrating the launch of the new Manchester-Cork route, Ryanair is offering fares from only £14.99. To qualify for the low introductory fares, tickets must be purchased by midnight on October 31st, 2021 for travel through March 2022.

In Friday’s announcement, Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said,

“As Europe’s No.1 airline, Ryanair remains committed to re-building Europe’s aviation and tourism industries by restoring connectivity and growing our network of passengers to over 225 million per annum by 2026. As Ryanair takes delivery of 55 additional Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft this Winter, we are delighted to add this new twice daily route from Manchester to Cork which will allow UK and Irish families to reconnect this Christmas. This Winter, Ryanair as Manchester’s largest airline, will offer the good people of Manchester even more opportunity to travel on the lowest available fares with over 650 weekly flights to 72 exciting destinations.

“While Ryanair welcomes the UK Govt decision to reduce domestic APD from Summer 2023, it is neither sufficient nor timely enough to kickstart the UK’s tourism recovery, particularly for Summer 2022. Unfortunately, this delay will only damage the airline industry’s ability to rapidly rebuild connectivity, jobs and tourism. Ryanair calls on the UK Govt to immediately abolish APD for all travel, which would give both tourism and domestic UK connectivity a much-needed boost for this Winter and next Summer.”

Ryanair Holdings, plc is Europe’s largest airline conglomerate and the parent company of Buzz, Lauda, Malta Air, and Ryanair DAC. The airline carries over 150 million passengers annually with over 2,500 daily departures. Ryanair typically serves over 200 destinations in 40 countries with a fleet of over 400 Boeing 737 Family aircraft and 20 Airbus A320s. Currently, the low-cost carrier has an additional 210 Boeing 737-8200s on order. Ryanair has maintained a stellar safety record for over 35 years and prides itself on being “Europe’s greenest cleanest airline group,” promising customers a reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 50%, versus the “Big 4 EU major airlines.”
