No return flights after the 24th of December.

Cork has officially become Knock Airport.

This can't just be the DAA, Fungus are also in on the gig to turn Ireland into a one airport country.

Sad times that Cork has been reduced to a meaningless regional backwater.
Cork - Munich now gone.

2 flights a day, 7 days a week from Dumpland.

IAG Ireland and the DAA are effectively closing down Cork airport.

And there's nobody doing anything to represent the people of Cork.

The decimation of the airport is going to have a huge financial impact on the entire region.

Cork airport - 16 flights a day.

There are more flights from Dublin in 1 hour than there is in Cork for the whole day.

Given the demographics, that's plain corruption.

Cork is a feeder airport to major hubs like Paris Heathrow and Schiphol

Much easier to fly cork Schiphol Dubai for €428 return with KLM than to drive to Dublin pay tolls and parking and then give IAG Ireland €583 to fly on a budget carrier to Dubai
