Aer Lingus Regional flights from Southampton Airport to Cork Airport in the South of Ireland will began today, 14th March.
The new route, operated by Stobart Air, will operate up to five times weekly with fares from £29.99 each way.
Located on the Southwest coast of Ireland, Cork is the second largest city and is a cosmopolitan city full of culture, colour and variety with plenty to do for a weekend break or an extended summer holiday.
Dotted with seaside towns, encompassing scenic views, rich culture and culinary delights, Cork is a perfect destination which is now closer than ever.
Commenting as the inaugural flight took off from Southampton today, Martin Saxton, Chief Commercial Officer at Stobart Air said that the airline is delighted to offer this new route to Cork which offers further choice and value for passengers.
‘Since announcing the new route, bookings have been strong among both leisure and business passengers. As one of Ireland’s main cities for business, culture and tourism, Cork is a perfect destination for a short break or longer holiday from Southampton. Equally, Southampton will prove to be a popular destination for the Irish for both business and leisure travel.
‘We look forward to working with the team at Southampton Airport in growing and developing this route,’ he said.
David Lees, Managing Director, Southampton Airport said: It is wonderful to see the launch of this new route to Cork from Southampton Airport. Cork is the most requested route in Ireland from here, with the exception of Dublin and Belfast which are already operating. This new air link will open important connections for our region, which will be useful for business, the cruise industry, yachting, the universities and those visiting friends and relatives.
