Genoa – Starting from the end of October Genoa will be connected with Dublin thanks to a new Ryanair flight that will be operational on Fridays and Sundays.
The new route is on sale from todaywith fares available from just € 19.99 for travel until the end of March 2023.
“The opening of this new route from Genoa strengthens our commitment to increasing connectivity, travel options and inbound tourism to Genoa and the Liguria region – explains Mauro Bolla, Ryanair Country Manager for Italy – With the return of consumer confidence, Ask the Italian government to eliminate the “tourism tax” on all trips from 2022 to 2025, which is damaging the competitiveness of Italian airports compared to those. The elimination of this tax would facilitate a rapid recovery of Italian air traffic and jobs thanks to Ryanair’s low fares and long-term growth plan ”.
Satisfaction with the new connection was expressed by the Councilor for Economic Development of the Municipality of Genoa, Laura Gaggero: “This is a very important moment for our city because we are inaugurating a new collaboration between the Municipality and the airport and it has worked as a catalyst to expand collaboration with other territories, such as Savona and Tigullio. This collaboration allows us to study new routes that think about incoming and not just seasonal or outgoing flights. Being on the Ryanair portal, where millions of users pass through every day, gives us the opportunity to have an additional showcase for our city, a showcase through which we can convey the value and quality of our tourist offer also with dedicated communication spaces “.
The Secretary General of the Genoa Chamber of Commerce, Maurizio Caviglia, added: “What we are presenting today is a new way of moving to plan new flights. We have decided that the restart of the Genoa airport, of which the Chamber of Commerce is a member, must be focused on tourist incoming and for this we called the most interested hoteliers to the table from the repercussions of this strategy: the Genoese, the Savonais and those of the Genoese east. Thanks to a reasoning for the resources of the various tables in the living room setting, we have built a road map which today, with the announcement of the Dublin connection, is starting to bear fruit. But our path certainly does not stop here “.
“With this new flight Genoa and Liguria connect to an important European capital. – conclude the president of Genoa Airport Paolo Odone – certain that this connection will contribute to tourism towards our region and its capital, but will also be appreciated by the many Ligurians who want to leave to discover Ireland. We are grateful to Ryanair that with this new flight confirms itself as the first airline in Genoa in terms of number of routes“.
