On the announcement, Managing Director Niall MacCarthy said: “It is an honour to be shortlisted for the UK/Irish Airport of the Year award at the 2018 TTG Travel Awards.
“The entire team at Cork Airport continually strive for excellence in customer service, community relations, environmental awareness, and route development growth. To make it to the final five is recognition of the hard work and dedication of the whole team.”
