The boss of Ryanair says flights between Cork and Dublin will not return.
Michael O'Leary was responding to comments by Dublin Airport Authority Chief Executive, Kenny Jacobs, who thinks there's a strong possibility the route could reopen.
Flights ended in 2011, following the opening of the M8 motorway.
Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary thinks that has put an end to air travel between the two cities for good:
" I don't think Cork-Dublin flights would return.
"The motorway journeys are now less than two hours.
"The train services are less than two hours.
"We were the main area airline operating cork Dublin flights - we had three flights a day with 97% load factors, and once they finished the motorway road work, the load factor went from 97% to 23%."
Recently France banned some short-haul domestic flights.
It would mainly affect journeys from the capital Paris and southern cities like Bordeaux, Nantes, and Lyon.
French authorities say it was to cut climate emissions, and the flights would be banned when a train journey of less than two-and-a-half hours is accessible.
