Ryanair celebrates 10 million Passengers at Knock Airport.

#Traveltradetogether

Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, celebrates carrying 10 million passengers in/out of Ireland West Airport Knock . Earlier this year, Ryanair announced its biggest ever schedule for Summer ’23 with 16 routes, including an exciting new route to Lanzarote.

Ryanair currently operates over 120 weekly flights to/from Ireland West Airport Knock, a 15% growth on summer ‘22, driving invaluable inbound tourism while offering its West and North-West customers unbeatable choice at the lowest fares when booking their summer holidays. With over 900k Ryanair passengers expected to fly in/out of Knock airport this year, the airline is committed to driving recovery, growth, and tourism post-Covid.

To celebrate 10 million passengers at Knock Airport, Ryanair has launched summer ‘23 fares starting from just €29.99 one way available now on www.Ryanair.com.

Jade Kirwan (Ryanair Head of Communications) said, “We are delighted to be celebrating carrying 10 million passengers in/out of Knock Airport. Ryanair has operated at Ireland West Airport Knock since 1986 and our recently announced record summer ’23 schedule will not only provide Ryanair’s West and North-West customers with low-cost fares across an unbeatable selection of sunny hotspots and vibrant European city break destinations this summer but will continue to promote important rural development through the support of over 580 local jobs and delivery of even greater connectivity with Europe and its millions of holidaymakers”.

“To celebrate this great milestone, we are offering fares from just €29.99 one way for travel until Oct ‘23, only available on Ryanair.com”.

Celebrating today’s milestone, Joe Gilmore (Managing Director Ireland West Airport) added, “We are delighted to mark yet another significant milestone in the airport’s history welcoming Ryanair’s 10 millionth passenger to the airport. It’s been a fantastic 37 years with so many great highlights and milestones achieved along the way. During this time Ryanair has continued to grow and provide critically important international access to and from the UK market and connected the West of Ireland to sun destinations in Spain and Portugal, and also delivered access to European cities such as Milan, Barcelona and Cologne which have been hugely important in growing tourism numbers to the West and Northwest of Ireland. It’s remarkable that in their 37th year of operation here at the airport that it will be their busiest on record and it is testament to the popularity of their destinations and their continued expansion at the airport that record numbers will travel on their services from the airport this year”.

“I’d like to thank Ryanair’s customers and in particular the Ryanair staff here at the airport, who continue to play a very important role in helping the airport and Ryanair reach passenger milestones such as this and ensure the experience using the airport continues to be both a seamless and pleasant one. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with Ryanair and expanding our range of services with them over the coming years”.
