Seen cutting the ribbon in Dublin alongside the crew, officially opening Ryanair’s new year-round service to Stuttgart are Brian Gallagher, Airline Business Development Manager, Dublin Airport, and Lauren Hennessy, Sales and Marketing Executive UK & Ireland, Ryanair. The carrier will serve the 1,199-kilometre route daily.
- Ryanair has made Stuttgart (STR) its eighth German link from Dublin (DUB) after Berlin Schönefeld, Bremen (seasonal), Cologne Bonn, Frankfurt Hahn, Hamburg, Memmingen and Munich, with the ULCC beginning a daily, year-round service between the two cities on 23 November, a route it will operate on its 737-800s. “We are delighted to see Ryanair going from strength-to-strength, expanding its route network from Dublin Airport,” commented Vincent Harrison, MD Dublin Airport. “Ryanair is flying to 70 destinations from Dublin this winter and this new route to Stuttgart provides further travel options and flexibility for customers.” Although Ryanair’s latest service to Germany from the Irish capital will not face direct competition this winter, it should be noted that Aer Lingus offers a summer seasonal operation between the two cities. Along with flights to Stuttgart, Ryanair recently began routes to Munich and Naples from Dublin, with both having been inaugurated on 29 October. Dublin becomes Ryanair’s second route to Stuttgart, with the carrier also operating between the German airport and Manchester.
