Ryanair Announce New Direct Flights From Cork to Naples, Italy
Ryanair have announced the addition of a new twice-weekly service from Cork Airport to Naples, Italy due to commence in July 2019.
“Cork Airport is really thrilled to add Naples to our growing list of 2019 summer destinations. This is the fifth new route announced by Ryanair from Cork – London Luton, Poznań in Poland, Budapest, Malta and now Naples,” said Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director of the airport in a statement.
“We appreciate the investment Ryanair are making in Cork and ask the public across the south of Ireland to vote with their feet for the easier travel experience which is Cork Airport. We expect further growth for 2019 and are confident of an expanding route portfolio from Cork. Our team are working very hard to make that growth happen.”
Naples is the third largest city in Italy after Rome and Milan. It is a major tourist attraction on account of its acclaimed food, scorching summers, scenic coastlines and for being the location of volcano Mount Vesuvius, as well as the historic city of Pompeii. Its town of Sorrento and neighbouring island of Capri are also hotspots for visitors.
This announcement follows Cork Airport winning the annual World Routes 2018 Marketing Award last week, an accolade recognising excellence in aviation marketing.
