Flying high

In 1992 five million passengers came through Dublin Airport. Twenty-six million passengers used the airport in 2016. 

Thirty-three million people travelled through Ireland last year.

In 1992 Knock Airport, now called Ireland West saw 105,646 passengers go through its doors. This year the airport will cater for 750,000 passengers.

Every day Ryanair operates 1,800 flights across Europe and the airline carries 120 million passengers every year.

And it is all because of the EU Open Skies policy.
