The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) has welcomed the announcement of Ryanair expanding their operations to host the largest flight schedule recorded out of Dublin Airport, with over 900 flights weekly this summer.
The airline announced the major move yesterday (21 January) at Dublin Airport.
Pat Dawson, CEO of the ITAA said,
“Ryanair expanding their flight operations out of Dublin Airport is a great morale boost for the travel industry. The plan for an extensive increase in flights operating out of Ireland will not only provide encouragement for travellers to being travelling again, but will promote confidence across the entirety of the travel industry in Ireland.”
“Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, there has been some hesitancy concerning travel, especially on an international scale. I am confident that the development of this larger flight schedule will lead to a well needed assurance for the industry to return to pre- COVID days.”
