Cork Airport Opens New Airport Control Centre and Office Facilities

Cork Airport Opens New Airport Control Centre and Office Facilities

Cork Airport, Ireland’s fastest growing and most punctual airport, has opened a new Airport Control Centre (ACC) and purpose-built office suite following a further significant investment in the airport by daa. The two new facilities were officially opened by An Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade, Simon Coveney TD (pictured right).

Managing Director at Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy (pictured left) said: “As we are well and truly into our fourth consecutive year of growth, these new facilities are vital to our future growth with an anticipated 2.6 million passengers expected to travel through the airport this year, an expected increase of 8% on 2018 passenger numbers. We continue to invest in our infrastructure to match the strong forecasted growth ahead, to meet the needs of our passengers, airline customers as well as our staff. The investment by daa in The Hub and the new ACC will ensure the continued efficiency, safety, convenience and reliability at Cork Airport into the medium term. It also follows significant additional investment in Cork Airport’s campus roads and forecourt management technology this year and further significant investment planned for next year in security infrastructure and equipment all of which will amount to over €10 million in new investment over two years.”

Speaking at the official opening, An Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney TD said: “Cork Airport is growing and thriving and is a key component of the economy in the south of Ireland, connecting the region to 52 routes worldwide. We will see the benefits of this growth again this year throughout the south of Ireland with enhanced business connectivity and growing inbound tourism numbers.”

Three operational departments — Airport Police Control, Airport Duty Managers and the Airside Management Unit — have been relocated to the ACC, which features the latest technology and IT systems. This includes CCTV monitoring of the airport campus, 24-hour newsfeeds and flight information, police control and alarm master stations.

The Hub accommodates 22 personnel, consolidating Cork Airport management teams in one modern purpose-built facility. The open-plan office space, overlooking the airport’s arrivals hall, features a meeting pod, coffee dock and a spacious glass-walled eight-seater meeting room, with floor-to-ceiling images of local landmarks of the Wild Atlantic Way. Both projects were completed in four months, project managed by daa with technical input from Jacobs Engineering and built by Flynn Contractors’ Cork Office supporting local jobs and business.
