Ryanair has announced a new route from Dublin to Trieste as part of its Summer 2023 schedule operating twice weekly from next April.
The airline is also keen to expand services to Egypt and Libya. It currently only serves Morocco in the northern African region. In total, Ryanair only serves Morocco, Jordan and Israel – from different points – outside of Europe.
Ryanair has launched a limited-time seat sale, on the new Trieste route, for early bird customers looking to bag themselves a bargain on their Summer 2023 holiday with fares from just €29.99 available now on Ryanair.com.
Ryanair’s Dara Brady said: “With Easter and Summer ’23 fast approaching, we are delighted to be bringing even more choice and value to our Irish customers with the addition of this new route to Trieste as part of our Summer ‘23 schedule, offering our Dublin customers even more choice when planning their long-awaited summer holidays.”
Speaking at a conference this week, Ryanair group chief executive Michael O’Leary said Ryanair is already in talks with the authorities in Egypt and Libya about operating routes to and from both countries.
He also said Ryanair would be the first airline to return to Ukraine when the current war is over.
Ryanair has also published its latest monthly passenger traffic figures. These show that it carried 11.2 million passengers across its European route network during November. This was up 10% on the same month last year. Also, last month’s load factor – which measures how full its planes were – was 92%, up from 87% in November of last year.
Earlier this week, Ryanair significantly increased its green credentials by signing a deal with Shell to advance the supply of sustainable aviation fuel at more than 200 Ryanair-based airports around Europe.
