Aer Lingus Boosts Seat Offering from Cork Airport with New and Returning Routes

Aer Lingus plans to significantly boost its connectivity between Ireland and France, while also ramping up its seat offering at Cork Airport, this autumn and winter.

The airline has announced a brand new route – from Cork to Lyon, which will operate once a week on a Saturday. Taking off just before Christmas – on December 23 – the route will operate until the end of March and target passengers looking for winter sports getaways.

In all, Aer Lingus is looking to increase its flight capacity between Ireland and France by nearly 20% this autumn and winter.

As well as the new Cork-Lyon route, the carrier will resume its Cork-Tenerife route (from October 28) and its Cork-Malaga route (Christmas-February mid-term break). There will also be a doubling in frequency on its Cork-Lanzarote route to four weekly flights during the peak winter travel period.

The moves will see Aer Lingus increase its total seat offering from Cork by nearly 37%.

Donal Moriarty, Aer Lingus Chief Corporate Affairs Officer said: ‘‘We are delighted to announce the launch of the Cork to Lyon route with Cork Airport, as well as the reintroduction of the Cork to Tenerife and Cork to Malaga routes and increased frequency from Cork to Lanzarote. We recognise the desire of our customers in the Southwest to continue their international exploration through the winter months and we are delighted to provide the Cork region with more routes to do so.

‘’We anticipate a surge in demand for these winter and sun routes, especially during the festive season when many are eager to travel. Whether dreaming of carving up the slopes in one of the 200 incredible ski resorts accessible from Lyon airport or basking in the glorious sun in Tenerife, we’re here to help make our customers’ Christmas break unforgettable.”
