The departures path is straightforward at Cork Airport. Passengers being dropped off can be set down in front of the terminal entrance, or the short-term car park is on hand if the driver is accompanying them inside. This is also where Cork Airport rental cars are picked up and dropped off.
Ticketing desks and check-in counters are located on the lower level of the terminal. After checking their luggage, passengers can proceed to the security checkpoint and then continue on to the Departures Lounge, where a range of shopping, dining and drinking facilities are found. All ticketed passengers are also invited to relax in the Jack Lynch Executive Lounge before their flight departs.
