Cork Airport Retains Title As Ireland’s Most Punctual Airport

Research from global aviation analysts OAG reveals Cork Airport retained its position as Ireland’s most punctual airport in 2019, with an on-time performance of 83.7 per cent.

In total 2.6 million passengers passed through Cork Airport last year, with Cork Airport increasing the punctuality of its service in 2019 by +3.5 per cent on its 2018 figures. The OAG table also gave Cork Airport a clear lead of +4.9 per cent over its nearest competitor, Belfast International Airport, in the punctuality league.

The news comes as Cork Airport enters its fifth consecutive year of growth. Passenger numbers are set to rise by +5 per cent to 2.7 million in 2020.

Speaking on the research, Managing Director of Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy said in a statement: “With Cork Airport continuing to grow strongly year-on-year, it is fantastic to see that we have retained our status as the most punctual airport in the country. It is key that we maintain the aspects that the public love about Cork Airport — ease of access, convenience, award-winning customer service and minimal wait times.”

“We put a lot of time into our processes to ensure Cork Airport delivers on punctuality. It means we can confidently say to prospective passengers: ‘your flight is more likely to take off and arrive on time in Cork Airport than in any other airport on the island of Ireland.’ That is a huge selling point for us.”

There are over 50 routes on offer from Cork Airport to the UK and Continental Europe, along with multiple daily long-haul connections worldwide through major European hub airports. Two new routes have already been announced for Cork Airport for 2020, with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ new daily service to Amsterdam Schiphol starting from March 30 offering connectivity to 170 destinations worldwide through the airline’s extensive network of flights.

Ryanair have also announced a direct flight to the Croatian coastal city of Zadar from Cork Airport commencing in April 2020.
