An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, and Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan TD, joined Ryanair Chairman David Bonderman to officially open Ryanair’s new 10,000 sq.m. Dublin office campus in Airside Business Park, Swords.

Ryanair confirmed that in the coming year to March 2015 its traffic will grow from 81.5 million to over 84 million passengers, as it opens new bases in Lisbon, Athens, Brussels, Rome and significantly expands its route network from Dublin and London Stansted Airports. In addition to creating 500 new jobs for pilots, engineers and cabin crew in 2014, Ryanair will now create a further 200 jobs in its new Dublin offices, to develop its improved Ryanair.com digital platform (which will be released to the public later today) as well as its new mobile app at end June.

David Bonderman said: “I want to personally welcome An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, and Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan, to Ryanair’s new Dublin office campus. These are exciting times as we return to strong traffic growth to/from Ireland as a direct result of the Irish Government’s foresighted decision to scrap the travel tax from 1st April. The repeal of this tax has directly led Ryanair to open 21 new routes to Ireland in 2014, as well as increasing frequencies on over 30 other routes, in an expansion that will add more than 1.1 million passengers at Dublin, Shannon and Knock airports, and will create over 1,000 new jobs in Irish tourism in 2014.

“Ryanair sees the decision to scrap the travel tax as a welcome policy development by Mr Kenny’s government, which will enable Ireland’s airline/tourism industry to grow strongly, and it has certainly encouraged Ryanair to invest in, and help create, thousands of new jobs here in Ireland in 2014.

“I am excited by Ryanair’s growth prospects, as we take delivery of another 175 aircraft from our partners Boeing. We look forward to welcoming these 200 new people to Ryanair’s new Dublin office campus, where they will join a team which continues to show that Ireland leads the world airline industry and will continue to do so for years to come.”
