Ryanair To Take Over Kerry-Dublin Route Later This Month

Posted by


THE Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan, has announced the return of air services on the Kerry to Dublin route.

The Kerry route will be operated by Ryanair on a commercial basis. The collapse of Stobart Air on June 12 had resulted in an immediate cessation of Government funded Public Service Obligations (PSO) on vital regional air routes between Dublin and the airports of Donegal and Kerry.

Minister Ryan said; “I am very pleased to announce that services on the Kerry-Dublin route are to be re-instated from July 19 at no cost to the State.

“Ryanair has offered to meet the public service requirement on the Kerry/Dublin route, ensuring fixed standards of continuity, regularity and pricing. Ryanair has committed to operate a sustainable service over the next 7 months and beyond, with higher seating capacity than previously provided by Stobart Air,” said Minister Ryan.

“I believe this is a really good outcome for the Kerry region, providing a higher capacity air service for passengers as the summer season unfolds, and supporting the local economy as it begins its recovery from Covid. It is also good news for the taxpayer as Ryanair will operate the route on a commercial basis. There will be no cost to the Exchequer for the provision of this service,” he added.
