Ryanair Dublin to Almeria AT LAST, John.

Ryanair to add 300 new jobs and nine new routes from Dublin.

Plans expected to add 700,000 extra passengers

Ryanair has announced nine new routes from Dublin from next April to Almeria, Bari, Basel, Bucharest, Chania, Comiso, Lisbon, Marrakesh and Prague which will create 300 additional jobs in 2014 and which will carry and extra 700,000 passengers.


Speaking at the announcement this morning, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said that this announcement was a direct result of the government scrapping the travel tax in last month's Budget.

"It's a brilliant reaction from Ryanair," he said. "I've always had a regard for Michael O'Leary who makes decisions and gets on with it."

In the response the Ryanair boss said "I commend the scrapping travel tax which was key to this growth. The government are playing a key role in making Ireland an attractive travel destination."

The plans were unveiled today at the Aviva Stadium and they mark the first time in years that the Ryanair and the Dublin Airport Authority have sealed an expansion deal after frequently being at loggerheads in the past.

The plans will be welcomed by tourism chiefs, who are already basking in the glow of improved visitor numbers to the country this year after the success of the Government's 'Gathering' initiative.

The latest figures from the Central Statistics Office show that the number of visitors between January and August this year rose by 6.5pc, or 291,000, versus the corresponding period last year.

During the summer, the numbers of overseas visitors to Ireland rose 6.7pc, or 142,000 to 2.26million. Dublin Airport handled 19.1 million passengers last year, up 2pc on 2011. It expects to report record transatlantic traffic this year.

Ryanair, the second-biggest carrier at Dublin Airport after Aer Lingus, pledged in October to bring an extra 1 million passengers to Irish airports after Finance Minister Michael Noonan said he would scrap a controversial travel tax from next April.

Ryanair gave Shannon Airport, which now operates independently of the DAA, a huge boost last month when it announced that it will launch eight new routes from the airport next year.


It will fly to Berlin, Munich, Krakow, Paris, Faro, the Canaries and Nice. The airline said the increased services would result in 300,000 seats being added to Ryanair's operations at Shannon in a full year, nearly doubling its capacity at the airport to 750,000.

Last month, Ryanair also announced expansion plans at Knock. It will open new routes to Eindhoven in the Netherlands, Kaunas in Lithuania, and to Glasgow Prestwick. Services to London Luton will be increased from 16 flights a week to 18. The growth will add an expected 80,000 passengers a year through Knock.

Mr O'Leary has also said that he wants to increase traffic at Cork and Kerry.

Boma - agreed they seem to be changing into 'Mother Teresa' lookalikes --- let's hope they sustain their newly acquired canonisation!!!

I saw a recent interview with Michael O' Leary where he said that he was wanting to change the image of Ryanair.

If you had seen the TV programme on BBC 2 a little while ago and saw how his staff were treated let alone the customers perhaps he has realised it is time to change !

But they have along way to go ............

Let's look at Dublin - Almeria flight route as a start. It is nothing more. People travelling to Costa Almeria from Dublin and its region will welcome the route. But, most other Irish based people will continue to use Alicante and Murcia airports.

It is good that Dublin - Almeria is back. Aer Lingus used the route for years and then were challenged by Ryanair and Aer Lingus refused to compete moved elsewhere and later Ryanair dropped the route. Thank you Ryanair for killing the route that you had no interest in.

If I were involved in the hospitality industry I would not be hiring extra staff on the news of Dublin - Almeria. Remember, there is a recession going on in Ireland and is likely to continue for years to come (despite our politicians lies). Furthermore, the 'new' route is from 1st June and will expire before the winter.

Don't forget it is the share price that is driving Ryanair to improving its Customer Service - nothing more, O'Leary wants to become richer and richer.

If O'Leary was Lord Giles Barrington-Smyth from the back end of Poshville England you would consider him the best thing since Durex.
As for you Joep its a well known fact that begrudgey of our own is some irish peoples middle name.

Easyjet have just posted increased profits - Ryanair have just issued their second profits warning.

They are losing customers fast ! Not sure where jealousy comes into it ?
