Cork Airport Gets Set For A Busy Christmas

17 December 2013

100,000 Passengers Expected To Travel To And From Cork Airport Over The Festive Season

The Christmas holiday travel season is now well underway as the final Gatherings of the year get set to take place in homes across the globe and Cork Airport is expecting a busy Christmas with over 100,000 passengers set to travel to and from Cork Airport between now and the start of the New Year.

While Cork Airport will have additional Customer Care staff on duty over the Christmas season to ensure passengers have an efficient and smooth journey through the airport, Cork Airport would like to advise passengers of some key tips for travelling. Cork Airport spokesperson, Kevin Cullinane said ‘We are gearing up for a busy festive season at Cork airport and want to ensure that those travelling comply with check-in and airport security regulations. Passengers are reminded that Christmas Crackers cannot be accepted on flights so please do not bring them to Cork Airport, as you will have to leave them behind.  Many passengers take a lot of care and time to wrap Christmas gifts for family and friends, however we would ask passengers not to wrap these gifts so that they are not disappointed if they are requested to open these packages at the passenger screening area.”

Cork Airport’s terminal has been given a Christmas makeover to make sure that passengears arriving home are greeted with a traditional festive welcome. In addition, Cork Airport’s charity fundraising initiative ‘12 Days of Christmas’ in association with Red FM is taking place at the airport from December 9th until December 20th,. The charity initiative will see local choirs, singers and musicians performing at Cork Airport over 12 days in the lead-up to Christmas to raise much needed funds for Cork Airport’s three charities of the year - Bee for Battens, Make a Wish Foundation and Down Syndrome Ireland.

Cork Airport Management and Staff would like to wish all its customers a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year ahead.
