Ryanair has been in Ireland West Knock since it opened in 1986, and this new route confirms that we are committed to steady growth at the Airport.”

We are most mindful that our award-winning Airport continues to provide an ever-widening choice of great value, direct and convenient flights to our customers both in Ireland and in the UK.”
