In the Republic of Ireland the destinations of Dublin, Cork and Shannon are served while Italy is represented with seven city destinations, including Rome and Venice. It is in fact possible to fly to most major holiday destinations in Europe, from Innsbruck in Austria to Antalya in Turkey and Zurich in Switzerland. The rest of the world is represented with flight routes to Orlando in the USA, Endfidha in Tunisia, Cancun in Mexico and Sharm-el-Sheikh in Egypt.
