Cork Airport Welcomes Announcement On The Re-Opening Of International Travel

May 28, 2021


Cork Airport welcomes the Government’s formal announcement of a timeline for the re-opening of non-essential international travel in a safe and sustainable way.

Under the roadmap announced this evening by the Taoiseach Micheál Martin T.D. international travel will re-open from July 19.

daa, which is the operator of Dublin and Cork airports - the two largest airports in the State - has been advocating for a clear roadmap for the re-opening of travel for some time. 

Cork Airport will continue to work with our airline customers, Government agencies and other stakeholders in relation to the plans for a more widespread re-opening of air travel. We will also be working to restore the vital connectivity that the South of Ireland has lost over the past 14 months. The Irish economy, which is one of the most open in the world, is hugely dependent on trade, tourism and foreign direct investment (FDI). 

In line with Government guidelines, Cork Airport has remained open throughout the pandemic facilitating the import and export of essential medical supplies and cargo, search and rescue missions, medical evacuations and transplant flights.

Throughout the pandemic, the health and welfare of our passengers and our employees has been our key focus and that continues to be the case. 

All the crew at Cork Airport looks forward to welcoming back our customers shortly. When you are ready, we are ready.
