The statement published on IrelandWestAirport.com quoted its managing director, Joe Gilmore, as saying, “We are delighted to welcome today’s announcement of the return of a Tenerife service for winter 2023. Tenerife has always been a hugely popular destination amongst our customer base, and we are delighted to be able to welcome Tenerife back to our route network for this coming winter season.
“This will no doubt be great news for holidaymakers who enjoy the unbeatable year-round sun that Tenerife has to offer, and – along with our new winter services to Lanzarote and Málaga – customers in the west, north-west and midlands regions can enjoy our biggest-ever selection of winter sun destinations from the airport.
“We thank Ryanair for their continued support for the airport and their commitment to the west-of-Ireland region, which is further evidenced by the planned record schedule of flights and destinations available from the airport this winter.”
