Ryanair's Buys 25 Homes For Cabin Crew In Response To Capital's Housing Shortage

The homes in Swords are just one bus stop away from Dublin Airport.

The airline confirmed the move in a statement this afternoon.

This will be for new cabin crew, in their first year of employment, based in the capital to help it maintain the fleet of 33 aircraft based there.

The airline, in its statement, says the absence of affordable rental accommodation has been a "major impediment" to its efforts to recruit and train new Irish and European cabin crew.
