Cork Airport is in danger of being ‘grounded’

The official information desk at Cork Airport, I learned on a recent visit, wasn’t aware that the Eason’s there was being taken over by another bookseller. What a joke!

A serious shake-up is needed at the airport! Someone is asleep on the job!

So many people, including myself, depend on this airport for business and personal travel.

If something isn’t done soon, I’m fearful for it’s future.

What, if anything, is the management doing to improve numbers?

The shops are empty; the place is like a graveyard.

What are Cork politicians going to do to resurrect the airport and ensure its future?
