Naples Flight Launched as Passenger Figures Continue to Rise

On the day Ryanair announced a new route from Dublin to Naples, Dublin Airport announced that almost 1.8 million passengers passed through the Airport in February, a four per cent increase over the same month last year.

The increase in passenger numbers came despite the fact that there was one day less in February this year as 2016 was a leap year.

Passenger volumes to and from continental Europe increased by four per cent with more than 852,000 passengers travelling to and from European destinations.

Passenger volumes to and from North America grew by 28 per cent with almost 127,000 passengers travelling on this sector in February. Other international traffic, principally on routes to and from the Middle East, grew by 10 per cent with over 55,000 passengers travelling on these routes in February.

The number of passengers using Dublin Airport as a hub to connect to another destination increased by 81 per cent as more 59,000 passengers connected through the airport last month. “Naples is steeped in history and culture and I have no doubt that this new route will be popular for both leisure and business travellers,” said Dublin Airport's Vincent Harrison.
