The low-cost airline has announced it will fly nine new routes out of Dublin this winter, including one to Brussels Zaventem.
CEO Michael O’Leary maintains that the new three times a day flight service to the Belgium capital could help save the Government €3m per annum in travel costs to the home of the European Commission.
The new routes include Basel, Lisbon, Cologne, Nice and Prague. Ryanair is in the process of reinventing itself as it tries to attract more families and business travellers.
The airline is introducing flexible fares that will let business passengers change flight times and dates as part of their ticket price in the event that their schedule changes.
“Once we have identified that you are a business passenger flying with us, you might have a flex-fare option that would include features like fast-track through airport security, reserved seating and checked-in bags all built into the seat price,” Mr O’Leary had said previously.
“The key feature will be that you will be able to change the flights and the timings if your meetings change.
