Cork Airport announces new route to Europe

Swiss International Air has a new route between Cork and Zurich.

The new service will operate throughout the summer season, starting June 2, 2017 to September 29, 2017.

The airline will fly weekly each Friday from June and the flights will increase to two a week, every Monday and Friday, throughout July and August.

Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport, said: "We believe that the route has great potential from both an outbound as well as an inbound market. Switzerland has been a target market of ours, primarily due to its close business and pharmaceutical connections with the region. But also, we have the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East, both right on our doorstep.

"The Swiss capital has plenty to offer those flying from Cork; Munster outbound tourists can take in the city and nearby alpine sights."

Swiss International Air, Switzerland’s national carrier, is part of the Lufthansa Group and is also a member of Star Alliance, the world’s biggest airline grouping.
