Low cost airline Ryanair has announced nine new routes – including one to Bucharest – from Dublin Airport, starting April 2014 – as part of an expansion that will create 300 direct jobs, Mediafax informs. The airline said the expansion will deliver an additional 700,000 passengers a year in Dublin, which will deliver 700 indirect jobs at that airport. As well as the Romanian capital, the new routes will service: Almeria, Spain; Bari, Italy; Basel, Switzerland; Chania, Crete; Comiso, Sicily; Marrakesh, Morocco; Prague in the Czech Republic and Lisbon in Portugal. In addition, Ryanair announced it will be increasing capacity and frequency on routes from the UK and some European destinations. In a statement, Chief Executive Michael O’Leary said the announcement was a direct result of the Government’s decision to scrap the EUR 3 travel tax.
