Ireland West Airport launches 2022-2023 winter schedule with 84 weekly flights
Ireland West Airport has launched its winter schedule, with 84 weekly flights to and from a host of cities in the UK and Europe. Ryanair will operate its largest-ever winter schedule at Ireland West Airport with 11 routes, including a new twice-weekly winter service to Birmingham.
This winter will also see the continuation of Ryanair’s weekly sun service to Malaga and see the airline operate a twice-weekly service to Milan, offering consumers the option of a weekend city break while also providing access to several of Europe’s top ski resorts located within a two-hour drive of Milan Bergamo Airport.
Access to the UK market will continue to be very strong this winter, with Ryanair operating services to Bristol, East Midlands (Nottingham), Edinburgh, Liverpool, London (Luton and Stansted) and Manchester, as well as its new service to Birmingham. In addition, Aer Lingus will continue to provide excellent connectivity to south London with its service to London Gatwick.
“On the back of a very busy summer season, where passenger numbers have returned to close to 2019 levels, we are delighted to see such a robust schedule of services launched this winter with our airline partners Aer Lingus and Ryanair,” said Joe Gilmore, Managing Director, Ireland West Airport. “The summer was an extremely busy one for the airport and it was great to see such strong numbers travelling once again, as we recovered from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was particularly pleasing to see the significant increase in numbers using the airport from counties such as Galway, Donegal, Westmeath, Offaly, Cavan and Monaghan as we welcomed thousands of new customers from these counties during the summer season, recognising the ease of travel, cheap airport parking and general all-round convenience of using the airport.”
