Ryanair expands route network including first service to Bodrum

Ryanair launched operations on a new route between Dublin and Kiev Boryspil on 2 May, a service it will operate twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays). Among those pictured at the launch in Dublin was Eimear Ryan, Sales Marketing Executive UK & Ireland, Ryanair (right). No other carrier links the Irish and Ukrainian capital cities.

Ryanair Bodrum

Ryanair introduced flights between Dublin and Bodrum on 4 May, with the Turkish airport becoming the carrier’s second destination in the country after Dalaman. Flights on the airport pair will be flown twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays) this summer, facing no direct competition. Bodrum Airport baked this cake to toast the service.

Ryanair Budapest

Budapest Airport also upped its baking game on 2 May, producing this bullfighting-inspired cake to celebrate the start of Ryanair’s new twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) service to Seville. Along with Seville, Ryanair has also begun flights from Budapest to Bari, Cagliari and Rimini this week. Only Bari services face direct competition.

  • Ryanair launched nine new routes between 2 and 4 May, including its first-ever flights to Bodrum (BJV). It becomes the carrier’s second destination in Turkey, having added flights to Dalaman last summer from Dublin (DUB), the origin of the new route to Bodrum, and Bratislava. Along with the arrival of Bodrum to the network, a further eight routes have been launched, with four of these involving Budapest (BUD), with the Hungarian gateway welcoming new services by the airline to Bari (BRI), Cagliari (CAG), Rimini (RMI) and Seville (SVQ). Four of the routes also involve Dublin, including the Bodrum connection. Details of all nine new routes for Ryanair can be seen in the table below.
