Cork Airport

Cork Airport has changed considerably over the last few years. And its been a bit of a political football over the years.

Cork Airport

We are told that Cork Airport can handle large planes such as the ones that come from the US. But the large planes from the new country must land in a certain part of the old country called Shannon before going anywhere else, except the ones that manage to dodge Shannon and make it all the way to Dublin. There is political magnetism in that reclaimed land pas loin du Lisseycasey and it pulls all metallic flying objects to it in a way that might have fixed Alcock and Brown’s course due south of Clifden.

There are no direct flights from Cork to Shannon. Must be something to do with the insurmountable Kerry mountains or stellar land links between airports that make air travel between incomprehensible. This is not taking anything away from Shannon. God Bless them over there. After all the aerrianta glue is on them aswell.

You might wonder why you decend the steps from your aircraft at Cork airport to walk (or be blown) across to the terminal building, when you could be walking comfortably inside a skybridge. Its a new airport building after all – surely this skybridge technology has been nailed down by now.

And what is Ryanair doing ? Lots of flights to Shannon and even a flight to Germany from Kerry. But Cork is a different story. Plenty of O’Leary’s in Cork boy. The discerning Cork punter has it sussed. Perhaps Michael thinks his savvy namesakes will jam up the well oiled machine, zealously demanding plane access 39 minutes before departure, and wearing 6 layers of clothes to avoid the checked baggage fees. Or maybe it’s that football which O’Leary is kicking to see if he can get the glue off.
