Ryanair has announced a record schedule for flights out of Dublin Airport this summer, with 120 destinations and 900 flights planned per week.

The airline is adding 22 new routes to it's Dublin schedule with destinations including Spain, Italy, Greece, Croatia and Portugal.

Eddie Wilson, chief executive of Ryanair DAC, mentioned the company has launched the plan with the help of a €90 million incentive scheme funded by the Government.

"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," Mr Wislon said.

"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 further aircraft also set to be based at Dublin Airport, the company will create 30 new jobs.

Dalton Philips, daa CEO, welcomed the plan: "Government funding announced in Budget 2022 has allowed daa offer additional attractive incentives to our airline partners to rebuild international connectivity from Dublin Airport and this investment by Ryanair for the busy summer season ahead is testament to that."

To celebrate the airline's announcement, Ryanair has launched a seat sale starting at €29.99 for seats until the end of June 2022. However, tickers must be booked by midnight Sunday, 23rd January.

"If your plans change so can your booking, with our zero change fee offer," Mr Wilson added.
