Ryanair announces new Dublin route and flash sale

Fancy a getaway?

Ryanair is set to begin offering flights between Dublin and Naples twice a week - starting in the winter.

The Irish company is Italy's most popular airline and it has launched a new Naples winter schedule - which will serve Bologna, Brussels, Budapest, Krakow, Malta, Porto, Thessaloniki, Wroclaw and the Irish capital.

It also has daily flights to London and Milan from the Italian city.

Ryanair will invest $200m baseing two air crafts in Naples.

The firm says that its summer flights to and from Naples are attracting record bookings and that lower fuel costs mean that its fares are lower than last year.

In Naples, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary commented on the announcement: "We are pleased to launch our first ever Naples winter schedule, which includes 9 new routes which will deliver 1.7 million customers per annum and support 1,300 jobs at Naples airport. Our 2 based aircraft represents an investment of $200m, which further underlines our commitment to growing traffic, tourism and jobs in the Campania region and we look forward to working closely with our airport partners to deliver further growth in Naples.

"To celebrate the launch of our Naples winter 2017 schedule we are releasing seats for sale across our European network from just €9.99, which are available for booking until midnight Thursday (March 9th)," he continued.

Last week, the company revealed that it carried a record number of passengers during the first two months of this year.
