Cork Airport is welcoming a new route to Malta with Ryanair from March 2019, the latest in a series of routes announced by the airline from Cork.
The service to Malta will operate twice weekly as part of Ryanair’s Summer 2019 schedule.
“We are thrilled to see our partners Ryanair add Malta as the latest new destination to their extensive route network from Cork,” said Niall MacCarthy, Cork Airport managing director. “Malta is a fantastic destination, famous for its beautiful coastline, amazing heritage sites, and the capital city Valetta is a real gem. We see Malta as a strong, safe outbound destination which combines food, sun and amazing sights.”
He continued: “This is the fourth Ryanair route announcement in as many weeks at Cork Airport following the recent good news that London Luton and Faro will operate from October, while a new service to Poznan, Poland will commence in March 2019.”
Ryanair’s service to London Luton Airport will be served year-round six times weekly and was announced as part of the airline’s Winter 2018 schedule, while the new twice-weekly service to Poznan, Poland is part of the airline’s summer schedule for 2019.
MacCarthy commented: “I look forward to seeing passengers from across the south of Ireland availing of the enhanced connectivity from Cork Airport from this autumn.”
