This will include routes from Cork to Boston and Cork to Barcelona which will start up in May 2016. More routes, including Cork to New York, are expected the following year.

Speaking about the news, Cork Airport Managing Director Niall MacCarthy said: “Cork Airport has long sought a service to the United States and we are thrilled that our customers will be able to fly direct from Cork to Boston next year, and that we’ll have flights to New York in 2017.

“The addition of direct year-round connectivity to North America has long been a target for Cork Airport, which has a robust business hinterland with a large cluster of US multinationals and a fantastic tourism product. This is great news for both Cork Airport and the region and is a major strategic boost for both business and tourism.”
