Cork Airport gets new air traffic control tower

The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) today officially opened the new control tower at Cork Airport.

 Construction of the tower began in August 2007 and took 10 months to complete at a cost of €7.5million ( $11.25m).

A spokesperson for the Airport said today that “notwithstanding the current decline in traffic figures, this move positions the IAA to deal with anticipated traffic levels at the airport for the next 15 – 20 years”

Cork Airport is located 5 miles to the south of Cork City and is very conveniently located for visiting destinations in the South West of Ireland.
