Ryanair from 28 July inaugurates an initial return daily service from Dublin to Kerry, as a pure commercial operation and not, as previously, a PSO (public service obligation). The plan is to go twice daily from 1 September. Prices start at £19.99, the alternative road route via Limerick getting on for 200 miles.
Ryanair already operates international flights from Kerry to Luton (3 times weekly), Stansted, Manchester and Alicante (2 times weekly each).
Michael O'Leary, Ryanair CEO, took the opportunity of again criticising the Irish Government. “Minister Ryan’s failure to take any action to promote air travel recovery [which] has led to Ireland being the most damaged aviation market in Europe as evidenced by this week’s Eurocontrol statistics. Other island nations like Malta and Cyprus have vastly outperformed Ireland.”
