Ryanair has announced extra flights on four Dublin routes – to Barcelona, Faro, Nice and Paris Beauvais.
These increases are in addition to the airline’s nine new Dublin routes to Almeria, Bari, Basel, Bucharest, Chania, Comiso, Lisbon, Marrakesh and Prague, which will start in April, and extra flights on its Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, London Stansted, Madrid and Manchester routes.
This growth, says Ryanair, is in direct response to the Irish Government’s decision to scrap the travel tax from April this year and should result in over 700,000 extra passengers at Dublin Airport this year, sustaining over 700 additional on-site jobs.
In 2014 at Dublin, there will be 85 routes in total, expected to carry 8.25 million passengers.
