Aer Lingus launched operations between Cork and Dubrovnik on 4 May, one of two new routes to be launched by the carrier from Cork this summer. Flights to Dubrovnik will operate twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays).
- Aer Lingus has expanded its international network from Cork (ORK) with the introduction of flights to Dubrovnik (DBV) and Nice (NCE). The 1,477-kilometre route to the French Rivera airport was last flown by Aer Lingus in S14 on a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) basis. It has returned to the airport pair after four and a half years, launching services on 1 May, again operating a twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays) frequency, albeit on different days of the week. Along with this route, the Irish flag carrier inaugurated a 2,250-kilometre sector to Dubrovnik on 4 May. Flown twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays), the Croatian link becomes the airline’s 15th non-UK route to be flown from Cork on either a seasonal or year-round basis based on OAG schedules. Dubrovnik and Nice services will be flown using A320s and face no direct competition.
