Aer Arann Blow for Cork Airport

Cork Airport suffered a major setback today with the announcement that Aer Arann is to abandon two routes from the Airport on September 1st.

The routes to Cork & Belfast face the axe as Aer Arann claims it has a fleet capacity issue.

While the Cork-Dublin route is currently also served by Ryanair, the Belfast route will be left without a carrier.

The move is also a blow to passengers who travel from Cork to Derry airport as Aer Arann operated a link via Dublin to the Northern city. Passengers traveling to Derry will now have to take the much less convenient Ryanair-AerArann connection in Dublin.
