Overall, Ryanair will offer from Dublin a network of 120 destinations and more than 900 weekly flights, with increased capacity to Greece, Croatia, France, Spain, Portugal, and Italy.
According to the ultra-low-cost airline, the investment in the base will increase to 33 aircraft and an additional injection of 100 million dollars, creating some 30 additional jobs.
Ryanair’s investment in Dublin (DUB) is the result of the Traffic Recovery Scheme recently launched by the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA). In contrast to other airlines reducing capacity due to their financial situation, Ryanair continues to add capacity significantly reviving the airline industry, the company expects the delivery of 67 Boeing 737 – 8200 «Gamechanger» aircraft which have lower fuel emissions and offer more seats.
«Together we have a long journey ahead of us as we seek to reconnect Ireland with the rest of the world and fulfill our role as an enabler for the Irish economy in terms of trade, tourism, and social connectivity,» said Dalton Philips, CEO of DAA.
«Government funding of €160 million for our airports in recent months, including over €97 million for Dublin Airport, has put DAA in a position to offer attractive incentives to its airlines and this announcement from Ryanair represents the fruits of that. The reinstatement and growth of the route network from Dublin Airport this summer is good news as we rebuild international connectivity blocked by the global pandemic,» said Hildegarde Naughton TD, Minister of State at the Department for Transport.
