Ryanair Kyiv Launch

Dublin Airport is delighted to welcome the launch of Ryanair’s twice weekly summer service to the Ukraine capital, Kyiv. 

“Ryanair will fly to 100 destinations from Dublin Airport this summer and we are delighted to see its route network go from strength to strength,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.

“The new route will boost trade and tourism between Ireland and the Ukraine and I have no doubt it will be a popular route in both directions. We will work closely with Ryanair and its management team to promote this new service,” he added.

Kyiv is a major city in eastern Europe with a population of more than 2.8 million. The city is known as an important industrial, scientific, educational and cultural centre. 

More than 6.5 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport in the first three months of the year, representing an 8% increase, or an extra 460,000 passengers, compared to the same period last year.

Dublin Airport has flights to almost 200 destinations in 43 countries, operated by 53 airlines and is the 11th busiest airport in the European Union.
