CORK Airport has welcomed the announcement that Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, is to launch a new service to the UK seaside resort, Newquay Cornwall.
Aer Lingus Regional will commence the route on 6th May 2017 through to 2nd September 2017 and will fly twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays for Summer 2017.
With the addition of the new service, Aer Lingus Regional expects to grow its passengers from Cork Airport by 7% to over 330,000 in 2017. Fares will start from €34.99 each way, including taxes and charges and are available at aerlingus.com.
