who were these people crowing about corks sizeable population , supporting a local airport ?
You need a single airport for the eastern side of ireland. not two half proper ones plus 3/4 subsidized joke ones.
Your money would be better spent on decent rail links to and from shannon and much improved bus links.
What is the point of a cork airport , convenient as it is to kerry and the local industry , if few companies will fly there ?
Remember a proper rail link to shannon would put it at a 40 minute trip . From dublins point of view that is a stones throw .
clearly i am wrong . a small airport serving london that is ten minutes away is much much better that a large airport fourty minutes away serving all the destinations that dublin airport does and more .
I cant see your argument about population size at all.If you were to base an airports viability on population alone then shannon would be the one to close in the morning.
I also seriously doubt that Shannon serves more destinations than Dublin,and im pretty sure that Cork actually serves more destinations than Shannon but correct me if im wrong
