Cork Airport, Ireland’s second busiest and best connected international airport, saw growth of 4% last year, serving 2.4 million passengers. The airport is now entering its fourth year of consecutive growth, with passenger numbers set to rise by 7% this year. It is forecasted that 2.6 million will travel through Cork Airport in 2019.
Speaking on the ranking, Managing Director of Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy said: “As Cork Airport continues to grow, it is important that we maintain the key aspects of what our passengers have always loved about the airport — ease of access, award-winning customer service, minimal wait times, and of course, our punctuality. Topping the punctuality league of Irish airports is a testament to the extensive work the team at Cork Airport, along with our airline partners, put in to provide hassle-free and seamless travel for passengers flying out of the south of Ireland.”
