Ryanair has announced a new route from Bournemouth to Dublin, with a four weekly service commencing in April 2019, which will be a part of Ryanair’s Summer 2019 schedule.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said: “Ryanair is pleased to announce a new Bournemouth route to Dublin commencing in April, which will operate four times weekly as part of our Summer 2019 schedule.”
Andrew Bell, Chief Executive Officer, Regional & City Airports (RCA), which is the owner and operator of Bournemouth Airport, said: “Ryanair’s Dublin route announcement is exciting news for local passengers – Dublin is up there with Amsterdam and Paris for city weekend breaks – and there is all of the convenience involved in flying from an airport on their doorstep.
“We anticipate an extra 70,000 passengers a year with the Dublin route, which is part of Bournemouth Airport’s growth strategy, including the ambition to double passenger numbers to 1.5 million over the next five years.
“Ryanair is drawn to the connectivity Bournemouth Airport can offer, including an international length runway and superb landside and airside facilities. This is about giving passengers a wide range of destinations to choose from.
“Within 10 months of acquiring Bournemouth Airport, RCA is on the flight path to delivering improved services as well as dovetailing with the needs of local business and creating fresh opportunities for the regional economy.”
