Liadh Ní Riada siad:

“I want to offer my congratulation to the staff and management at Cork Airport on this achievement. As a frequent user of the airport I can testify to the professionalism, vision and dedication of the operation there. Cork Airport remains an integral part of the transport infrastructure for the South of Ireland, serving a large catchment area and connecting Cork and the Region with the world.

“Cork Aiport are rightly focussed on attracting new airlines, building on the routes already operating out of the city, and in continuously developing and improving its offering for the people of the Region and visitors alike.

“Effecive transport communications are vital for regional economic development. Cork is well placed to contribute to balanced economic growth in Ireland and its strategic development is a key building block in progressing this vision.

“This commendation will add to the profile and prestige of Cork Airport in aviation industry circles and contribute to Cork securing and developing new routes and an expanded range of destinations. This is good for Cork, good for the Region and good for Ireland.”
