Jerry trained to be a priest and made reference to this countless times when campaigning outside churches looking for votes. The man is a rank hypocrite who stands for nothing, is for nothing and is a total spoofer.

Ryanair announces 4 new winter services from Cork: Alicante, Budapest, Malta & Poznan - all twice weekly and will bring the total number of routes from Cork Airport to 14 - rising to 2m passengers per year!

All extensions of summer routes already announced but still great news, three of those routes were only announced in Oct so bookings must be good, Naples also got a bit of an extension a few months ago. Rome can't be far off at this stage, Eastern European routes will start bleeding back in too; Riga, Vilnius, Prague..

JetBlue switching their order from A321 Neo to A321LR means that the planes can reach Germany, France and Spain from the East Coast, rather than just the UK and Ireland. I would imagine that Cork is a fair bit down the list for them. I'd say that the marketing team in Cork are hounding JetBlue but a route in the near future is unlikely.

You never know. What's attractive to Aer Lingus with their future 321 OPs is probably the same in reverse for any US operator, use the airframe during the local night and stick it straight on the early morning business rotation on it's return.

But you are right, Cork would be well down the pecking order. A relatively low cost operator like JetBlue would think long and hard about exposing itself to the 261 passenger legislation in Europe too.

AIRLINE Norwegian has announced that its flights from Cork to Providence from April 2nd-9th will now go from Dublin instead, and passengers will be bussed up.

Norwegian was forced to make alternative arrangements when it chose to ground the aircraft originally scheduled to fly the route.

The Boeing 737 Max was involved in two major crashes in recent months and airlines around the world have moved to ground it as a result.

A statement from the airline today said: ‘Norwegian has worked continuously since the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX to ensure that customers travel plans can continue with minimal disruption. The airline has re-routed customers and offered passengers the chance to rebook or receive a full refund free of charge if they no longer wish to travel.’

The airline is also combining flights and reallocating aircraft within its own network to keep cancellations to a minimum and minimise inconvenience for its customers.

For passengers on the Cork to Providence service, due to travel between April 2nd and 9th, they will be now transferred to Dublin.

Customers booked to travel from Cork to Providence on flight D8 1821 have been transferred to flight D8 1823 from Dublin to Providence, serviced by a Boeing 737-800.

Those booked to travel on flight D8 1820 from Providence to Cork have been re-accommodated on flight D8 1822 from Providence to Dublin on the Boeing 737-800.

Norwegian will also arrange a bus service for passengers from Cork Airport to Dublin Airport to meet their onward flight. The bus departs at 9am arriving at Dublin Airport Terminal 2 at 3pm.

Customers arriving at Dublin for Cork will be met upon arrival with a bus at the coach park outside Terminal 2 at 8am.

Affected customers have been contacted by SMS text messages which include their options to rebook or receive a full refund.

There are similar arrangements for passengers booked from Shannon to Providence.
