Ryanair has today called on the Green Party Leader Eamon Ryan to resign as Transport Minister, and even went as far as showing photos of him asleep at sessions pertinent to Dublin Airport.

Branding the airport passenger cap as “idiotic”, the Irish low-cost carrier continues to call for it to be lifted or removed.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Showing a picture of Eamon Ryan sleeping at a session, Ryanair took this opportunity to mention how he has been asleep at the wheel:

  • He was asleep during the security queues crisis in Summer 2022.      
  • He was asleep when drones closed Dublin Airport 6 times in Spring 2023.
  • He is asleep now while growth at Dublin Airport is capped despite the recent opening of a 2nd runway in 2023, which increases Dublin Airport’s capacity to 50m passengers.

Adding to this was the airline CEO Michael O’Leary, who also noted other opponents to the airport cap:

“Eamon Ryan’s position as Transport Minister is untenable. He has failed to tackle any air transport issues over the last 4 years.”

“He has failed for 4 years to develop any aviation policy for Ireland, and he has now failed to take action while a number of his own Green TD’s (including Junior Minister, Joe O’Brien) and MEP’s, launch objections to a modest increase in the artificial traffic cap at Dublin Airport.”

“As an island on the periphery of Europe, Ireland and Irish tourism need growth in low-cost air access, particularly when this growth is being delivered on new and more efficient aircraft, which carry more passengers but burn less fuel and reduce noise emissions as well.”

“Eamon Ryan is an incompetent Transport Minister. After 4 years in office, Dublin is now the 2nd most congested city in Europe, and now Dublin Airport is Europe’s only capital city airport which has an artificial planning ban on any growth despite opening a 2nd runway less than 12 months ago.”

“Ireland’s aviation industry and the future of Irish tourism cannot be left in the hands of an incompetent and useless Green Minister.

“He should immediately instruct Fingal County Council and An Bord Pleanála to abandon this idiotic 32m passenger cap at Dublin Airport, he should resign and let someone competent develop Irish air transport.”

All eyes will be on whether this pressure works or not.
