Ryanair Welcomes Opening Of Dublin Airport’s Second Runway

First Flight On Ryanair’s New B737 Max Aircraft With 50% Saf And 40% Less Noise

Ryanair, Ireland largest Airline, today (Wed 24 August), welcomed the opening of Dublin Airport’s new North Runway. The first flight was operated by one of Ryanair’s new B737 MAX aircraft, carrying 197 passengers departing for Eindhoven at 12:00hrs local time. This aircraft which carries 4% more passengers, but burns 16% less fuel, also reduces noise emissions by 40%, delivering quieter landings and take-offs on Dublin Airport’s new second runway.

This aircraft arrived in this morning from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, where 50% of its fuel uplift was comprised of SAFs, making it one of the greenest, cleanest flights ever to land, to date, at Dublin Airport.

Ryanair’s CEO, Eddie Wilson said:

“We welcome the opening of Dublin Airport’s new second runway today, and congratulate all the DAA team on delivering this critical infrastructure on time and within budget. This new 2nd Runway capacity will enable Ryanair to operate more flights to/from Dublin airport, keeping air fares low, delivering tourism growth, all on new aircraft, which carry more passengers, but burn less fuel and substantially cuts noise emissions for the benefit of our neighbouring communities in North County Dublin.

As we enter an era of higher oil prices, and increasing environmental taxation, it is imperative that Ireland, as a country on the periphery of Europe, enhances our low-cost connectivity to Europe and the wider world. This combination of new runway capacity at Dublin, allied to Ryanair’s new, greener and cleaner aircraft, will we hope, enable us to continue to grow at Dublin, in a manner that burns less fuel, and reduces noise for the benefit of the neighbouring community, and our millions of passengers.”
