Ryanair Launches Biggest Ever Dublin Schedule For Summer 2023

Ryanair today (14 Mar) announced its biggest ever summer schedule to/from Dublin, with 130 routes, incl. 14 new destinations to sun hotspots like Asturias and Castellon in Spain, Kos and Zakynthos in Greece, and exciting city break destinations like Stockholm, Genoa and Leipzig.

Ryanair’s record Dublin schedule offers the lowest fares and more than twice as many destinations as any other carrier operating to/from Dublin Airport this Summer, delivering over 16m passengers and supporting over 13,000 local jobs.

Ryanair’s Dublin Summer ‘23 schedule will deliver:

  • 33 based aircraft – incl. up to 16 B737 Gamechangers
  • $3.3bn investment
  • 130 destinations incl. 14 new
  • Over 2,000 weekly flights
  • 10% traffic growth on S22
  • 16m passengers p.a.
  • Over 13,000 jobs incl. over 1,000 direct pilot, cabin crew & engineering jobs

With 14 extra routes compared to last Summer, Ryanair will operate over 2,000 weekly flights to/from Dublin Airport this Summer, connecting 130 destinations across 27 countries, incl. top European destinations across Croatia, Greece, France, Italy, Portugal and Spain among many more.

This traffic growth (+10% on S22) will deliver not just inbound tourism but will also offer Irish customers the widest choice and the lowest fares when booking their Summer ‘23 getaways – whether trying city breaks in Berlin (24 weekly flights), Krakow (18 weekly flights) or Lisbon (32 weekly flights), or sun holidays in Dubrovnik (8 weekly flights), Lanzarote (28 weekly flights) or Santorini (4 weekly flights).

This expanded Summer schedule is underpinned by an increase in the number of B737 Gamechangers based at Dublin rising from 11 up to 16.

These more enviro efficient aircraft carry 4% more passengers, burn 16% less fuel and most importantly, generate 40% less noise on Dublin Airport’s new north runway.

 Speaking from Dublin, Ryanair 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.”

Speaking from Dublin, daa 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.”
