02Nov 2015: Dublin Airport will offer almost 1.5 million extra seats across its route network this winter season, representing a 13pc increase in capacity compared to last year.

Three new services will operate from Dublin Airport this winter.

Thirteen services which started during the summer will operate on the winter schedule for the first time. Capacity and frequency will also increase on a number of routes.

“Dublin Airport’s winter schedule has strengthened significantly with the addition of 16 new services providing even more choice and flexibility for our customers,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison.

“This is set to be the busiest winter season in the airport’s 75-year history – with a great selection of ski, sun and city break destinations,” he added.

Passenger numbers at Dublin Airport have increased by 15pc so far this year, with more than 19.2m passengers using the airport during the nine months to the end of September.

New routes and services announced for next year include Aegean to Athens, Aer Lingusto Los Angeles, Newark and Connecticut, and Thomson will fly to Cancun, Mexico and Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was one of the fastest growing airports in Europe in the first half of the year.
