Ryanair, Ireland’s favourite airline, today (31 Oct) announced it will open 3 new routes from Knock to Eindhoven, Glasgow Prestwick & Kaunas from April 2014, as well as increased frequencies on its London route, which will deliver an additional 80,000 passengers p.a. and support 80* new on-site jobs at Knock. This growth is part of the 1m extra passengers p.a. that Ryanair will deliver at the main Irish airports in a direct response to the Irish Government’s decision to scrap the €3 travel tax from April 2014.
Ryanair’s expansion at Knock from April 2014 will deliver:
– 3 new routes to Eindhoven, Glasgow Prestwick & Kaunas (16 routes in total)
– Increased frequency on the Knock to London routes (16 to 18 flights pw)
– 80,000 new Ryanair passengers p.a. (580,000 in total)
– 80* new on-site jobs
– Knock traffic will grow from 670,000 to over 750,000 p.a
Ryanair’s 3 new Knock routes will start in April 2014 and go on sale on the Ryanair.com website tomorrow. Following successful negotiations with Knock and Shannon, Ryanair is finalising its discussions with the other main Irish airports – Cork, Dublin and Kerry– to finalise its growth plans for summer 2014 and hopes to announce more route and frequency growth from Ireland in the coming weeks.
