Among the 100 routes already operating, Ryanair has 14 new destinations available to passengers travelling from Dublin Airport, including: Bordeaux, Bournemouth, Bodrum, Cagliari, Dubrovnik, Gothenburg, Split, London Southend, Lourdes, Milan Malpensa, Thessaloniki, Luxembourg, Frankfurt, and now Kiev.

Welcoming the announcement, Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said: “We are delighted to welcome Ryanair’s new service to Kyiv. The new route will boost trade and tourism between Ireland and Ukraine and I have no doubt it will be a popular route in both directions.”
