SN Brussels Airlines, the national carrier of Belguim, has announced 2 weekly flights between Cork and Brussels commencing this summer (July) – depending on the popularity of the route, the airline has said it will consider year round flights. This additional service now adds to the growing list of scheduled European services to Cork which now includes Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Barcelona, Malaga, Alicante, Rome, Munich, Malta, Nice, Prague, Budapest + many others.

Also, I have it on good word that a notable US Airline is currently in talks with the airport about commencing a scheduled, year-round Cork to New York JFK service (which will operate between 3 and 4 times weekly) – however, this will be subject to further negotiations and the outcome of US-Ireland Bilateral Aviation Agreement discussions. Aer Lingus have also expressed an interest in commencing a Cork – US service subject to the successful outcome of the same negotiations, New York JFK is also their preferred destination.
