Ryanair Planning 20 New Routes From DUB

Wed Oct 05, 2005 9:05 am

Ryanair is reportedly close to a deal with the dublin airport authority which will see it launch 20 new contintal routes from DUB. Under the deal, FR would get a 50% reduction in airport charges for the new routes. DUB's basement (originally designed to house a metro station but now currently used as storage) will be renovated to house a new checkin area. FR may aslo move to a new temporary aircraft contact pier .

I think DUB-HEL would be a hit, unfortunately in Finland Ryanair only flies to Tampere, around 200km north of HEL. The distance is simple too much for many here in the capital area.

As Dublin city has no metro system whatever - the airport basement, if designed to be a metro station, would have been rather pointless. In any event the airport terminal dates from the early 1970's, when the word metro was not spoken at all in Ireland.

Of course now there there are upteen differing plans for "metros", "interconnectors" and "rail links" running here and there across Dublin, including to the airport.

But, as usual, it is just talk and no action.
