Ryanair has officially launched its twice-weekly summer service to Papho at Dublin Airport.
The new route, operating on Mondays and Fridays, will put it into competition with Cobalt Airways to the holiday island, which is beginning to feature more on the Irish tourist radar after years of decline.
Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said: “Not only is Cyprus a great sun destination it is steeped in culture and places of archaeological interest. I have no doubt it will be a popular destination for Irish holidaymakers.”
Dublin Airport will welcome a total of 14 new routes/services this summer comprising five long-haul and nine short-haul destinations.
