Ireland West Airport welcomed the announcement of Ryanair’s biggest ever summer sun summer schedule. The 2024 summer schedule represents an increase of 5% compared to summer 2023.

Ryanair will operate flights to 9 city break and sun destinations across Europe, with 32 weekly flights and 170,000 seats available to and from European hotspots such as Alicante, Barcelona, Cologne, Faro, Lanzarote Majorca, Malaga, Milan and Tenerife this summer. In response to market demand Ryanair will increase frequency on their services to Faro, which will increase to four times weekly, during the peak summer season, and also Barcelona (Girona) which is extended, to now operate from April to October.

Ryanair, will also operate flights to 8 different UK airports this summer including, Birmingham, Bristol, East-Midlands (Nottingham), Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool, London Luton and London Stansted.

The carrier is increasingly deploying its growing fleet of Boeing 737 MAX 8-200  ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft on routes from Ireland West Airport to Alicante, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, London Luton , London Stansted, Manchester, and Malaga.

Ireland West Airport Managing Director Joe Gilmore said “We are delighted to see Ryanair’s route network continue to grow year on year. The return of our popular Tenerife service for summer 2024 will be warmly welcomed by holidaymakers across the region. This summer will be the busiest one on record for sun destinations and the choice on offer for customers in the West, Northwest and Midlands regions has never been better, combined with the stress-free experience and convenience of using the airport we hope these factors will entice new customers to the airport this summer and experience for themselves the benefits of flying from a regional airport like Ireland West. We thank Ryanair for their continued commitment to the airport and look forward to further growing their route network from the airport in the future”.
