Campaign to save Cork Airport set up by Star reader

A SOUTHERN Star reader has set up a Facebook page called 'Save Cork Airport'.

Siobhan McCarthy said she is starting a campaign to keep the regional airport open, after learning that it has lost even more flights recently - this time to Nice and Lisbon.

Siobhan said she was amazed to see that after just 48 hours the numbers on the site had gone from 70 to 300 'likes', and by 5pm on Wednesday there were '3,119' likes for her campaign.

'Cork Airport is to lose even more flights, Nice & Lisbon. Please join the campaign to save the airport and lobby politicians to deal with the unfair debt,' she said in the page's information section.

And in one comment, she writes: 'To add insult to injury the DAA's profits are up and still Cork Airport drowns under its debt. This proves the resources are there to find a solution that's fair for Cork.'

Siobhán emailed the Star to say she was particularly impressed with the article by Archon in last week's paper, on the same subject.
