I think that there is a collective sense of denial about Cork Airport. I must admit that i don't understand why cork airport is run by the daa.

but i don't subscribe to the theory that the daa wants to 'screw cork airport'. sorry, but when cork flights aren't viable and close down, it's because not enough passengers use the service to make it viable or profitable. I'm not sure why cork expects to have services that simply cannot support.

when cork airport loses a destination, it is regularly blamed on;

-Lack of marketing
-The DAA
-Poor promotion
-Stupid people driving to Dublin
-Simon Coveney
-Some other politician
-The airline
-Parking costs


It is never blamed on

-Fundamental viability issues [insufficient numbers travelling]

Cork people would rather save 60 euro and get the bus to Dublin and fly from there.

Well stocked on destinations to England and Scotland though.

Cork is well served as a feeder airport to large European hubs, like Heathrow, Schipol, and Paris CDG.

These are primary hubs easily accessible from Cork.

Much easier to fly via a primary Hub than drive or get the bus to a secondary airport in Dublin.
