Development Plans

Cork Airport has, development plans that will effectively treble the size of the current airport, the airport will be developed over a phased basis from 2012 in phases numbered below.

1) The Cargo area (Currently located to the North East of the airport) will be moved to the South East of the airport south of Runway 25, the current location of the General Aviation area. In moving here the General Aviation area will be moved directly opposite to the South West of airport just south of Runway 7, work is expected to begin in 2012.

2) Using space from the removal of the Cargo Area the main Terminal will be extended, allowing new fixed gates to be built, effectively doubling the current space for scheduled and charter aircraft using Cork. The old Terminal will be demolished allowing the Terminal to extend also, This means that there is now the prevision of two Terminal extensions. These are the extension of the new Terminal out over the cargo area, and the extension of the new Terminal onto the current old Terminal, work is expected to begin in 2012, with the demolition of the old Terminal and work on extending the Terminal will begin when passenger numbers begin to exceed 5m (the current limit of the new Terminal).

3) The main Runway 17/35 will be extended, feasibility studies will be carried out in 2012 after work begins on Phases 1 & 2. This will allow for the prevision of Long Haul aircraft (747, 777, A340) to use the airport, work will begin on the extension of the runway when phases 1 & 2 are active.

4) The Road network, Public transport infrastructure will be developed as soon as phases 1 & 2 become active. This will comprise of the renovation of the main N27 which serves the airport to Motorway standard of 3 x 3 lanes in each direction (1 on each side a designated bus lane). A new road will be built from the South link roundabout near Cork University Hospital and Togher, to the Airport.

We would like to highly recommend travelling with iDrive Group, because we were able to see so many things both in and outside Cork. Our driver was courteous and fun, and the car was nice, clean and spacious. We left with best memories and we hope to be back really soon!
