Ryanair Celebrates 10 Million Passengers Through Ireland West Airport Knock

Ryanair is celebrating carrying 10 million passengers through Ireland West Airport Knock.

Earlier this year, Ryanair announced its biggest ever schedule for Summer 2023 with 16 routes, including a new service to Lanzarote.

Ryanair currently operates over 120 weekly flights to and from Ireland West Airport Knock, a 15% growth on Summer 2022, driving invaluable inbound tourism.

With over 900,000 Ryanair passengers expected to fly in and out of Knock Airport this year, the airline is committed to driving recovery, growth, and tourism post-Covid.

To celebrate 10 million passengers at Knock Airport, Ryanair has launched Summer 2023 fares starting from just €29.99 one way.

Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Jade Kirwan said:

“We are delighted to be celebrating carrying 10 million passengers in/out of Knock Airport. Ryanair has operated at Ireland West Airport Knock since 1986 and our recently announced record Summer ’23 schedule will not only provide Ryanair’s West and North-West customers with low-cost fares across an unbeatable selection of sunny hotspots and vibrant European city break destinations this Summer but will continue to promote important rural development through the support of over 580 local jobs and delivery of even greater connectivity with Europe and its millions of holidaymakers.

“To celebrate this great milestone, we are offering fares from just €29.99 one way for travel until Oct ‘23, only available on Ryanair.com.”

Celebrating today’s milestone, Joe Gilmore, Managing Director, Ireland West Airport added:

“We are delighted to mark yet another significant milestone in the airport’s history welcoming Ryanair’s 10 millionth passenger to the airport. It’s been a fantastic 37 years with so many great highlights and milestones achieved along the way. During this time Ryanair has continued to grow and provide critically important international access to and from the UK market and connected the West of Ireland to sun destinations in Spain and Portugal and also delivered access to European cities such as Milan, Barcelona and Cologne which have been hugely important in growing tourism numbers to the West and Northwest of Ireland. It’s remarkable that in their 37th year of operation here at the airport, that it will be their busiest on record and it is testament to the popularity of their destinations and their continued expansion at the airport that record numbers will travel on their services from the airport this year.”
