Ryanair will offer their largest-ever schedule from Dublin for Summer 2022 with over 900 weekly flights to 120 destinations, including 22 new routes. The schedule includes popular leisure getaways to Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Greek Islands, Croatia and regional France.
On Thursday (January 20, 2022), Ryanair announced the launch of their largest ever schedule from Dublin Airport for summer 2022 with over 900 weekly flights to 120 destinations. Included in the record breaking schedule are popular sunny leisure destinations in Spain, Portugal, Italy (including Sardinia and Sicily), the Greek islands, Croatia and regional France. The carrier will also base their 33rd aircraft at Dublin Airport, representing an additional investment of $100 million and creating 30 direct new jobs. For summer 2022, Ryanair will offer an additional 22 routes from Dublin compared to summer 2019.
In today’s announcement, Ryanair DAC’s CEO, Eddie Wilson, said,
“We are pleased to announce our largest ever flight schedule at Dublin Airport this summer. This extensive programme will see Ryanair operate over 900 weekly flights to over 120 destinations, giving inbound tourism a much-needed boost while also giving Irish consumers the widest choice of great destinations this summer.
“After 2 years of stop\start ineffective travel restrictions, the daa have finally been given the tools to incentivise travel with its Traffic Recovery Support Scheme (TRSS) which was recommended by the Aviation Task Force to Government in their report of July 2020. This scheme gives Ryanair the confidence to invest in our largest ever summer schedule and largest number of based aircraft at Dublin Airport. The daa TRSS scheme will ensure airport charges are competitively priced vs. other EU countries this summer, and Ryanair have responded by launching its largest ever investment in aircraft, connections and jobs at Dublin Airport. With many airlines cutting routes and jobs, it is important that Ireland’s airport charges remain competitive vs. other EU countries and regions so that this investment can be maintained in this period of recovery and it is vital that this Traffic Recovery Scheme is extended into winter ’22/23 to keep that investment and connectivity in Ireland.
To celebrate today’s announcement of our largest ever summer schedule of over 120 routes to the beaches of Spain, Portugal, Italy and its regions including Sardinia and Sicily, Croatia, France, Cyprus and the Greek islands, we have launched a seat sale with fares from just €29.99 for travel until the end of June 2022, which must be booked by midnight Sunday, 23rd January, and if your plans change so can your booking, with our zero change fee offer. With air fares likely to increase this summer due to reduced industry capacity, we encourage all customers to book early and scoop up these lower fares on Ryanair.com.”
