Ryanair’s inaugural routes to Lublin Airport in Poland were greeted with a celebratory cake showcasing the brand new terminal building.
- Ryanair became the first carrier to serve the market from Dublin (DUB) to Lublin (LUZ) on 18 December, when it launched twice-weekly services connecting the Irish capital and the eastern Polish destination. Together with the London Stansted service, which was became the maiden route to this brand new Polish airport only a day earlier, the airline will operate a total of two destinations to Lublin this winter. In addition, Ryanair further expanded its Dublin network on 22 December, when the low cost carrier resumed three winter destinations. The airline now operates with weekly frequencies each to Turin (TRN) and Grenoble (GNB), as well as twice-weekly to Salzburg (SZG). On the same day, it also launched Grenoble (GNB) from its busiest base at London Stansted (STN). While this twice-weekly service faces indirect competition from British Airways (10 weekly frequencies); easyJet (2); Thomas Cook (1), all of which operate the route from London Gatwick, the airline will be a solo carrier on all resumed Dublin routes.
