Flight frequency increase to Cork

Wed, 03 Oct, 2007

The English-Irish connection will become even stronger soon as a greater number of flights have been announced between Leeds Bradford Airport and Cork.

Flights to one of the Republic of Ireland's most famous southern city will increase from five times a week to daily, as operator Aer Arann celebrates the first anniversary of the services between the two countries.

Head of sales and marketing at Aer Arann Colin Lewis comments that the service has proved well liked by Irish customers.

"Indeed Leeds Bradford continues to be a popular destination for the Irish, both for students or as a gateway to Yorkshire and beyond," he remarks.

He adds that Cork and Galway - another Irish city that Aer Arran flies to from Leeds Bradford - are popular short break destinations.

Communications officer with Leeds Bradford Airport Sam Wynzar commented that the route had greatly enhanced services from the airport.

Galway is situated on the west coast of the country and close to beauty spot Connemara.
