Cork Airport, Ireland

Cork Airport (Aerfort Chorcaí in Irish) is Ireland's second busiest airport after Dublin. In 2013, the airport launched a 10-year master plan to overhaul its main terminal and infrastructure to cater for its rising passenger numbers.


The airport uses a single terminal for both international and domestic flights. Aer Lingus, Flybe and Ryanair fly in and out of Cork all year round, while other airlines such as AlbaStar, ASL Airlines, CityJet, Iberia Express and Volotea offer flights on a seasonal basis. The most popular international routes are flights to London, Amsterdam, Malaga and Lanzarote.


The airport's single terminal has plenty of facilities to keep travellers and visitors busy, from meeting rooms to a hair salon. You can shop for local souvenirs, international labels and duty-free goods at The Loop, withdraw and exchange money, and access free Wi-Fi throughout the terminal for a limited time. If you're hungry, you can satisfy your stomach with Irish or international dining options, including a food market where you can buy local produce.


For a fee, all travellers can make use of the Jack Lynch Lounge to enjoy complimentary refreshments, read current newspapers and magazines, or just relax while you're waiting for your departure. There are also two hotels next to the airport, if you need to catch up on sleep before or after your flight and want to reduce travel time.
