Ryanair Launches Largest Ever Summer 2023 Dublin Schedule
Ryanair will launch their largest-ever schedule to/from Dublin for summer 2023 with 130 routes, including 14 new destinations including Asturias and Castellon in Spain, Kos and Zakynthos in Greece, Stockholm, Genoa, Leipzig and more.
On Tuesday (March 14, 2023), Ryanair announced that they will offer their largest-ever summer 2023 flying program to/from Dublin. The carrier will offer 130 routes, including 14 new and exciting sunny destinations such as Asturias and Castellon (Spain), Kos and Zakynthos (Greece), as well as fun city breaks to destinations like Stockholm, Genoa and Leipzig. With 14 new routes compared to summer 2022, Ryanair will operate over 2,000 weekly flights to/from Dublin Airport, connecting 130 destinations across 27 countries.
In Tuesday’s announcement, Ryanair’s CEO, Eddie Wilson, said,
“As Ireland’s no. 1 airline, Ryanair is pleased to announce our biggest ever Dublin schedule for Summer ‘23, with over 2,000 weekly flights to 130 top destinations across 27 countries, incl. 14 new routes to the likes of Stockholm, Genoa, Kos and Zakynthos, offering Dublin customers/visitors even more choice for their Summer holidays at the lowest fares in Europe. Ryanair will offer more than double the destinations of any other carrier operating to/from Dublin this summer and is the only airline operating to the likes of Zakynthos – a Greek island in the Ionian Sea with its iconic white-sand beaches or Asturias – a tranquil region in north-western Spain with mountain trails and world-class cuisine. Ryanair is offering the most varied selection of destinations and this additional growth will be delivered on more enviro efficient aircraft, which will reduce noise by 40% on Dublin airport’s new north runway.
“Ryanair will carry over 16m passenger to/from Dublin this year, delivering more traffic, more jobs, and more low fares than any other airline. However, if we are to continue to grow and to drive recovery and connectivity to Dublin in the long term, the daa must keep airport charges competitive. Projects, like the €200m tunnel that increase costs unnecessarily, are not wanted by airlines and only damage the economy by driving capacity to more competitive European airports. To celebrate the launch of Ryanair’s Summer ‘23 schedule for Dublin, we are launching a special promo with seats from just €29.99 for travel between Apr and Oct ’23, which must be booked by midnight 16 Mar on www.Ryanair.com.”
Also commenting on Ryanair’s summer schedule expansion, Dublin Airport Authority’s CEO, Kenny Jacobs, said,
“I am delighted to welcome Ryanair’s biggest ever summer schedule from Dublin Airport with 14 new destinations and the resultant jobs this growth brings to the Irish economy. Ryanair is an incredible success story, and daa wants to support their future growth at Dublin and Cork airports. We take a necessary long-term view on infrastructure and we are progressing our €1.9 billion capital investment programme to ensure Dublin Airport continues to grow in a safe and efficient way to support all our current and future airline customers. Aeronautical charges at Dublin Airport are one of the lowest among our peer airports in Europe and we wish to remain a low-cost airport whilst securing a modest increase to ensure a resilient offering for our airline partners and passengers.”
The expanded Dublin summer schedule will be underpinned by an increase in the number of Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft based at the airport from 11 to up to 16, for a total of 33 based aircraft.
