150x150-corkCork Airport is the international gateway to the South of Ireland and is uniquely positioned at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East.  It is the country’s second largest and busiest international airport with more choice of routes than any other airport outside of Dublin. More than 2.2 million passengers travel through the airport each year, flying to top destinations across the UK and throughout continental Europe and soon to the USA. Cork Airport’s customer service (as voted by passengers) has won multiple national and international awards.

220x100_bristol“The 2016 Regional Airports Conference in Vilnius was a great opportunity to meet with colleagues from similar sized airports across Europe, facing similar issues, in similar markets. It is a great forum to exchange views on best practise and latest developments, as well as to develop contacts with existing and potential business partners and suppliers. I always find ACI Europe conferences to be well organized and very rewarding.”
