Gdańsk has just gone on sale for the Winter season. It's very odd that this should happen at end of August.

Ryanair adding Poznan for summer 2019.

That means flights to three Polish destinations, but not Warsaw or Krakow, which youíd think would be the two most viable routes. I wonder will anyone be tempted.

Shannon covers that market. The polish community care less about travelling as they rather save money so they're more likely to go for the cheapest flight than their Irish equivalent.

I donít think thereís any great stream of Cork people up to Shannon any more. Because of the motorway link and very regular bus services, Dublin seems to be the second choice now. The same applies in reverse. Only really in North Cork and West Limerick are the two airports really competing these days. Thatís only a combined population of 150k.

An additional summer bucket and spade route or two, I guess. Maybe a winter once weekly Geneva?

Seeing that a similar post went up in the Shannon thread, I wonder if it could be a based Aer Lingus Regional aircraft in Shannon, which would mean no more Ws out of Cork, so a bit of solid if unspectacular growth on UK routes.

A day early, but I guess it’s the news.

Ryanair to fly to Malta twice weekly.

Its not clear is this actually Ryanair or is it one of these occasions that they will be selling tickets in Air Malta.

Air Malta used to operate to Cork a decade or more ago.

Timings do imply that the aircraft is Malta-based

For early flights it's still a haul to get to Dublin in time - even more so if you have to deal with the American formalities. The tunnel has made a huge difference in accessing Shannon but the Buttevant-Charleville situation needs sorting. Unfortunately the powers that be are insisting it be a motorway rather than decent relief roads. I came down from Shannon a few weeks ago - after 15 years in Canada the N20 south of Croom is largely unchanged. We were stuck in Charleville traffic for ages because there was an event in the town square. Ludicrous.

Seems to be a Cork-based aircraft on a Thursday and a Budapest-based one on an Sunday.

At the press conference, it was also announced that Ryanair will be training 450 pilots through Atlantic Flight Training.

The Thursday slot is currently used by BGY, so I wonder what will happen there. BGY isn't yet for sale, so it might not be coming back next year?

2019 is looking like a decent year for the airport with BUD, MLA, LTN all added, PVD will be back as well. There may be some more announcements from EI and EIR, I suppose. On the negative side BGY appears uncertain, but with Volotea to VRN ORK is still connected to the region.

''The ramp-up of Ryanair operations has not gone unnoticed by Aer Lingus.

The IAG-owned airline is planning to combat Ryanairís bid for Cork Airport domination by extending its own services in the coming months.

When asked by travel industry figures this week if it was committed to expanding in Cork, Aer Lingus chief executive Stephen Kavanagh was bullish,

We are the largest airline in Cork and we intend to maintain that position, Mr Kavanagh said.
He said Aer Lingus would be making announcements in the coming weeks focusing on expansion in mainly European cities.''

Itís hard to see how Aer Lingus can expand much without committing another based aircraft. And another based aircraft would represent a big expansion.

Ryanair have the big advantage that they can expand capacity by using other bases and then add an extra aircraft, knowing that they can transfer over a lot of the routes that had been operated from those other bases.
