Dublin Airport welcomes Ryanair’s announcement that it is to add the Spanish city of Vigo to its route network from April 2016.

Welcoming the announcement Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison said, “We are delighted to see Ryanair add another Spanish destination to its route network from Dublin Airport.

"Vigo is a maritime city located in Galicia in the north-west of Spain and provides greater choice and flexibility for both business and leisure passengers.  We look forward to welcoming the launch of the new route next April,” he added.

The new service will operate twice weekly during the summer schedule.
