New route: ORK

The new Cork-Amsterdam route will be operated by KLM subsidiary, KLM Cityhopper using Embraer 175 and Embraer 190 aircraft, depending on the day of the week.

It is expected to add another 41,000 seats from Cork Airport for the busy summer season.

The new route is the latest in the Air France-KLM group's expansion in Munster.

Having first launched the Cork-Paris Charles de Gaulle route in May 2018, Air France announced last month that they will operate twice daily for summer 2020.
Great news! This is on top of the 10-weekly EI service. But it will probably also mark the end of KL's codesharing on EI.

I hope that it does well, will be great not to have to endure EI but at one flight a day and in the afternoon, it's not ideal.
Let's hope that AF/KL can grow at ORK but that will depend on local take up of the service.

ORK appears to be twice a day in the winter schedule.

Good news! Thanks for letting me know! I had looked only about 2 days ago and the route wasn't offered during the winter.

KLM adds Cork (Ireland) to its European network

KLM expands its European network with Cork (Ireland). As of 3 August, the second largest city of Ireland will be connected to Schiphol every day by KLM. Flights will be operated with the Embraer 175, with a capacity of 88 passengers.

KLM is in the process of slowly and carefully rebuilding its network. The number of destinations is growing rapidly, but the number of flights is still far from the pre-crisis level. KLM has opted to first offer customers as much choice of destinations as possible. After that, we will examine whether the number of flights to a destination can be increased or whether capacity can be increased by using a larger aircraft.

The opening of Cork was initially planned for the end of March. Due to the corona crisis it was postponed.

Flight schedule

Cork is the second destination in Ireland for KLM, next to Dublin. As of 3 August 2020, KLM will operate daily flights between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Cork Airport. The Embraer 175 has 20 seats in Business Class, 8 in Economy Comfort and 60 in Economy Class.

The flight schedule is as follows:

- KL1085 departs from Amsterdam daily at 12.05 and arrives in Cork at 12.55.

- KL 1086 departs from Cork daily at 13.25 and arrives in Amsterdam at 16.10.

All times are local.
