Cork Airport beat off competition from Torino Airport, Aberdeen International, Tallinn Airport, Limak Kosovo and London City Airport to claim the award.

Speaking after the ceremony, Managing Director Niall MacCarthy said: ‘‘I am really thrilled that Cork Airport has been named ACI EUROPE Best Airport of 2019 in front of an audience of hundreds of our airport peers here at our annual industry event in Cyprus.

“Anyone who uses our Airport at Cork knows we pride ourselves on the smoothness and friendliness of the passenger journey. This is all down to the staff based at Cork who work round the clock 365 days of the year, through good weather and bad, to make that journey friendly and easy.

"This year we are Ireland’s most punctual and fastest growing Airport with eight new routes and 10% passenger growth year to date.
