Ryanair is investing €50m in a new aviation training centre in Dublin as part of its plans to recruit 5,000 new staff across Europe in the next five years.

In a statement, the company said the new staff will be needed to crew its 210 new Boeing 737 planes and help it grow annual traffic to 200 million passengers a year by 2025.

The centre will be operated by Airline Flight Academy (AFA) which will now be the exclusive training partner for Ryanair cadets.

Ryanair said AFA will “play a central role in recruiting the next generation of aviation professionals, including pilots, cabin crew, engineers and ground operations professionals for Ryanair’s next phase of post Covid growth and expansion.”

The new centre in Santry contains five flight simulators, a state-of-the-art cabin crew training and emergency evacuation device and a specialist cabin fire training centre.
