Ryanair to Fly Dublin to Amsterdam

Ryanair has announced that it is to launch flights from Dublin to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport from this October and also to increase frequencies on 14 existing routes at Dublin Airport for summer 2016.

“Ryanair is an important customer for Dublin Airport, and we welcome its plans to expand further over the next 12 months,” said Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport Managing Director. “Ryanair’s new Amsterdam service and increased frequencies of 14 existing routes will provide passengers with greater choice and flexibility whether travelling for business or leisure purposes. This announcement is good news for Irish business and tourism to Ireland, particularly as a recent economic study highlighted the huge importance of Dublin Airport as an engine of growth for the Irish economy.”

The InterVISTAS economic study found that Dublin Airport supports and facilitates 97,400 jobs and is worth €6.9 billion to the Irish economy.

Passenger numbers are up 15% at Dublin Airport this year, making it one of Europe’s fastest growing airports. This is the fifth consecutive year of growth at Dublin Airport, with passenger numbers increasing across all major sectors of the business.

Dublin Airport, which is celebrating its 75th birthday this year, has flights to 167 destinations. In the first seven months of this year, almost 14.2 million passengers have used Dublin Airport, which is a 15% increase on the same period last year.

The new Amsterdam service, which will operate four times daily, will commence on 27th October. Ryanair has also indicated that it will increase capacity on the following routes from Dublin in summer 2016: Alicante, Barcelona, Berlin, Birmingham, Brussels, Budapest, East Midlands, Liverpool, London Gatwick, Madrid, Malaga, Manchester, Venice Treviso, and Warsaw.
