Ryanair is removing routes from Dublin Airport because of increasing passenger charges.

It will also be moving all of its environmentally friendly 'Gamechanger' aircrafts to airports across Europe.

Announcing its Winter Schedule today the airline cut 17 routes and removed all 19 of its Boeing Gamechanger fleet.

The airline has also criticised what it claims are a lack of plans to expand Terminal 1 and 2 to accommodate growing passenger traffic.

Eddie Wilson says he wrote to Minister Eamon Ryan three times to warn that this would happen, stating this decision could lead to higher fares on some routes.

In response the DAA has denied what it says are false claims by Ryanair regarding increased charges, stating the rates, set by the aviation regulator, are to increase by only 6% in 2024 not 45 %.
