Dutch airline Arkefly, a wholly owned subsidiary of travel company TUI Group, which flys to more than 70 destinations worldwide, including favoured holiday sites throughout the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and North and South America, has increased the number of available flights for passengers between Mediterranean destinations and mainland European city hotspots to Cork.
The new flights and frequency of flights over the summer will make Cork more accessible to Europeans travelling here for Ireland Vacations as well as help the many Irish living in the Med to return home easier for the many festivities of this year’s Irish Gathering.
The 32,000 seats available by Arkefly are for routes between Cork to Lanzarote, Malaga, Las Palmas, Palma de Mallorca and Reus during Friday 7th June 7th through to Friday 30th August. In addition this charter service, ArkeFly will also provide an additional 3,700 seats between Cork and Amsterdam with Dutch specialist inbound tour operator KRAS, which is also part of the TUI Group.
This new choice for passengers flying in and out of Cork is great news for passengers and for Cork airport which has already seen both Aer Lingus and Ryanair increase the number of flights and seats available to passengers to many European destinations.
