Long haul for airport

BILL HURLEY (Irish Examiner letters, February 17) asks why Cork airport cannot emulate Knock?

Firstly, Knock’s runway is longer than Cork’s and is likely to remain so as long as Cork is controlled from Dublin.

Maybe if Cork can get the freedom of action — even with a big debt — it may somehow find the money to extend the runway to facilitate long-haul flights and to install a landing system that can deal with fog. It might also be able to promote the use of the airport in the south.
