Elvis worried about taxi biz at Cork Airport
« on: September 14, 2020, 11:01:06 am »


If Ryanair pulls out, what will happen to Cork Airport? (Irish Times)

Quote
Taxi driver Derry Coughlan has carried passengers to and from Cork Airport since 1975. He has endured recessions and storms but he now fears for the future having never seen things as bad as during the Covid-19 pandemic.  “We went through Storm Ophelia and the snowstorms of recent years. We tipped away, there was still movement,” he says.  “This is the worst ever, I’ve never seen it so quiet. It’s at a total standstill. The people are only travelling out of bare necessity for births, deaths and marriages.”  The problems facing the airport increased last week after Ryanair warned it would pull its services from Cork for the winter if the Government does not relax quarantine rules for those travelling in and out of the State.  “Back in the good days, you would have 200-300 taxis rotating at the airport, now you have only three or four,” Coughlan says.
 “We’re only turning up when there are planes and we’re chancing our luck. Yesterday there were only three flights. Today there are nine. If Ryanair pulls out, it’s going to be a total collapse.”

I heard an airport taxi driver on the radio with Bobby kerr on Saturday, he was talking about how quiet it was as well. what I can't understand is why they don't ditch the airport for street work? the guy on the radio said he could be waiting up to 3 hours for a fare, madness. are they lazy or what?

Elvis  rofl did he die in 1975? the time this guy started working at cork airport.

Fair play to him putting his picture up with a head like that. Fearless!

On the last few Saturday afternoons an Elvis impersonator doing a gig on the street outside The Ashleaf S/Centre. Fckn hilarious but fair play to him trying to make a few quid.
