Tourism Ireland Welcomes New Flight From Amsterdam To Dublin

Published on : Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Tourism IrelandTourism Ireland warmly welcomes today’s announcement by KLM that it will launch a new, twice-daily flight between Amsterdam and Dublin. This new service – commencing in October – will help boost leisure and business travel from the Netherlands to Ireland. It is also good news for tourism from other markets, as Amsterdam is a key European hub, with KLM offering excellent connections via Amsterdam from other European countries, North America, Asia and the Middle East – making it easier for prospective holidaymakers in those markets to get to Ireland.

 

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement by KLM is more good news for Irish tourism, as we head into the high season. Not only will it help grow visitor numbers from the Netherlands, but this new flight will offer connectivity from other important tourism markets, including North America, Asia and the Middle East. We look forward to co-operating with KLM to maximise the promotion of this new service from Amsterdam to Dublin. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism.

 

“The Netherlands is an important market for tourism to the island of Ireland and we have seen excellent growth in visitor numbers from the Benelux countries so far again this year, with the most recent CSO figures, for February to April, showing growth of +31% – an extra 21,100 visitors compared with the same three-month period in 2015. We are determined to keep the momentum going and ensure that growth continues.”

 

Working with relevant partners to attract new and additional direct air access services, and continuing to highlight ease of access to the island of Ireland from key markets on existing routes, are major priorities for Tourism Ireland.
