According to a spokesperson for Dublin Airport Authority, it’s possible that Dublin will have direct flights to Asia within the next two years.
DAA’s CEO, Kevin Toland, said Ireland will have direct flights to China; flights to Africa and the U.S. will follow.
Fifteen new Ryanair routes have started in Shannon since the airport became independent from the DAA and the carrier just announced five new winter routes out of the Shannon Airport. The new flights will go to Krakow, Fuerteventura, Paris, Warsaw, and Berlin starting in October. No new flights will be opened from the Cork Airport, which is DAA-operated.
