PROMOTION Cork Airport Ireland Showcase: ORK Cork Airport


With growing connectivity and a catchment area that includes nearly a quarter of the total Irish population, Cork Airport is on the up


S


ituated in Ireland’s Ancient East at the southern tip of the country, acting as a gateway to west-coast touring route the


Wild Atlantic Way, and with over 150 multinational corporations and centred around a catchment of 1.16 million people (24% of the total Irish population), Cork Airport is at the heart of a region which continues to thrive. In 2018, passenger traffic grew 4% to just under 2.4 million passengers across a network serving the UK, continental Europe and the US. Cork is also forecast to grow 7% in 2019 to 2.6 million passengers. Highlights for the airport in 2018 included a new daily hub connection to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport with Air France, which increased available capacity at the start of the winter 2018/19 season to meet higher-than-expected demand. Aer Lingus and Ryanair also launched new routes to Lisbon and London Luton respectively, both from October 2018. The airport is already heading into the summer 2019 season with confirmation that six new, presently unserved routes – Budapest, Dubrovnik, Malta, Naples, Nice and Poznan – will be added to its network map. Due to the airport’s hard work in marketing to and


for the world’s airlines, its achievements were rewarded in 2018 when the airport was named winner at the World Routes Marketing Awards in the Under 4 Million passenger category. Cork was once again shortlisted, for a second year in a row, in the Under 5 Million

category at the ACI EUROPE Best Airport Awards, a title for which it claimed victory in 2017. These award recognitions came in the same year that the airport celebrated the milestone of the first full year of transatlantic services with Norwegian, which throughout the summer operates direct flights to Providence in the US. Over 31,000 passengers used the route in its first 12 months of service. The direct transatlantic connection has benefited the south of Ireland hugely in terms of inbound tourism from North America, with 60% of the passengers who use the Norwegian route being US nationals. Tourism continues to be a growing factor in


supporting passenger flows through the airport. About 1.61 million overseas tourists visit Cork each year, not counting visitors to other parts of the region, with the number of visitors forecast to grow by 20% over the next five years. Between 2018 and 2022, in Cork city centre alone, more than 930 new hotel rooms are expected to open to accommodate this growth (35% rise on today’s availability), with 72% of these positioned around the four-star market. With the revenue generated per room in the city growing by 64% between 2013 and 2018, the spending power of tourists and business travellers to the region continues to climb, with the city seeing ¤833 million of tourist revenue in 2017, of which 76% was generated by overseas travellers.
