Cork Chamber today launched a business air travel survey in association with Cork Airport. The survey explores the needs of users of the airport, the demand for new and existing routes and ways the airport can best service the needs of enterprise in the region. The survey is available online via the Cork Chamber website www.corkchamber.ie and closes on Monday 23rd July.
Launching the survey, Cork Chamber Policy and Research Manager Alma Murnane said, “This survey assesses the business travel needs of companies throughout the region, and will help enhance the business case for new and additional direct air services from Cork Airport. Improved connectivity at Cork Airport will also attract greater numbers of tourists to Ireland’s principal international gateway to the South of Ireland.”
Ms. Murnane continued “Increased route development is critical for regional economic development, and is to the benefit of all enterprises in the southern region. The recently launched Cork-Brussels route was one of the new European business destinations repeatedly requested by Cork businesses in our biannual air travel demand survey’s conducted by the Chamber in 2010 and 2008.”
