This week saw Ryanair announce that it will add extra flights between Dublin and Paris Beauvais as Ireland progress through the Rugby World Cup.
It is understood that the Irish low-cost carrier has added an extra 1,500 seats to the route for the Ireland vs. Scotland game on October 7 as well as for the quarter-finals on October 14.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Ryanair Adds Extra Dublin-Paris Flights for Rugby World Cup…
Commenting on the addition of flights between Dublin and Paris Beauvais for the Rugby World Cup was Jade Kirwan, the Head of Communications for Ryanair:
“We’ve had record bookings from rugby fans travelling from across Europe for what has already been a spectacular Rugby World Cup.”
“To celebrate Ireland’s success, we are excited to announce that we are adding even more flights between Dublin and Paris for the Scotland game on 7th Oct, and the Quarter Finals on 14th Oct.”
“These additional flights are available to book now at ryanair.com.”
The carrier has been very responsive to the tournament, as they have done things like in the past, such as adding flights from the UK for Wales, Scotland and English fans.
Ryanair has done the same ahead of the Six Nations that is taking place in February 2024, where 7,000 seats have been added to the Dublin-Paris route ahead of the first game where France host Ireland.
For now, all eyes are on the carrier to see if more flights are added in due course, as it will be dependent on how such teams progress in this tournament.
