Ireland Winter 2017 Schedule Launched
TRAFFIC TO DECLINE 3% AS DAA COSTS RISE WHILE EU AIRPORTS CUT COSTS
Ryanair, Ireland’s favourite airline, today (24 Jan) launched its Irish winter 17 schedule, with 97 routes (130 for summer), which will deliver 14.4m customers to/from Ireland in 2017, down 3% from the 14.8m carried in 2016. Irish customers and visitors can now book flights, holidays or groups out to March 2018 with the biggest choice of routes at the lowest fares, as Ryanair passes on lower fuel costs, and an even better customer experience, and continues to grow strongly except in its home market where DAA costs are rising, while other EU airports are cutting prices.
Ryanair’s Irish W17 schedule will deliver:
- 2 new winter routes to Tours (2 wkly) & Valencia (2 wkly)
- 68 routes in total
- 12m customers p.a. (down 3% from 12.4m)
- 9,000* on-site jobs
Ryanair continues to be Ireland’s number one airline with over 14m customers, connecting Dublin with major leisure and business centres on high frequency, low fare services including Amsterdam (x4 daily), Berlin (x2), Brussels (x3), London (x18) and Madrid (x3), with better timings and lower fares, making Ryanair the ideal choice for Irish business and leisure customers.
