Ryanair Announces Its Biggest-Ever Summer Schedule For Dublin

Ryanair has announced its biggest-ever summer schedule for Dublin Airport.


According to a statement published on, Ryanair’s 2023 summer schedule for Dublin Airport includes 130 routes, 14 of which are new destinations, including Asturias and Castellón, in Spain, Kos and Zakynthos, in Greece, Stockholm, Genoa and Leipzig.

Ryanair noted that the schedule will deliver more than 16 million passengers and support more than 13,000 local jobs – including more than 1,000 direct pilot, cabin crew and engineering jobs – with an investment of $3.3 billion, more than 2,000 flights per week, and a 10% increase in traffic, compared to the summer of 2022.


The statement published on quoted CEO Eddie Wilson as saying, “As Ireland’s number-one airline, Ryanair is pleased to announce our biggest-ever Dublin schedule for summer ’23, with over 2,000 weekly flights to 130 top destinations across 27 countries, including 14 new routes to the likes of Stockholm, Genoa, Kos and Zakynthos, offering Dublin customers/visitors even more choice for their summer holidays at the lowest fares in Europe.

“Ryanair will offer more than double the destinations of any other carrier operating to/from Dublin this summer, and [it] is the only airline operating to the likes of Zakynthos – a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, with its iconic white-sand beaches – or Asturias – a tranquil region in north-western Spain, with mountain trails and world-class cuisine. Ryanair is offering the most varied selection of destinations, and this additional growth will be delivered on more enviro-efficient aircraft, which will reduce noise by 40% on Dublin Airport’s new North Runway.


“Ryanair will carry over 16 million passengers to/from Dublin this year, delivering more traffic, more jobs, and more low fares than any other airline.”

The statement published on also quoted the CEO of Dublin Airport operator DAA, Kenny Jacobs, as saying, “I am delighted to welcome Ryanair’s biggest-ever summer schedule from Dublin Airport, with 14 new destinations and the resultant jobs this growth brings to the Irish economy. Ryanair is an incredible success story, and DAA wants to support their future growth at Dublin and Cork airports. We take a necessary long-term view on infrastructure, and we are progressing our €1.9 billion capital investment programme to ensure Dublin Airport continues to grow in a safe and efficient way, to support all our current and future airline customers. Aeronautical charges at Dublin Airport are one of the lowest among our peer airports in Europe, and we wish to remain a low-cost airport whilst securing a modest increase, to ensure a resilient offering for our airline partners and passengers.”
