Escaping to the sun this winter is set to be a lot easier for local holidaymakers following a new route announcement by Ryanair.
Ireland West Airport has welcomed a new weekly service to Tenerife every Thursday during the forthcoming winter season.
The largest of the seven Canary Islands, Tenerife sits in the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of North Africa and enjoys eternal sunshine – one of the reasons that makes this beautiful island such a hotspot for millions of tourists every year.
Five million people visit Tenerife every year making it the leading destination in the Canary Islands. Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands with an annual average temperature of 22 degrees.
Tenerife is a hugely popular holiday destination and it’s easy to see why with dozens of great resorts to choose from. From the well-known resorts of Playa las Américas and Los Cristianos, the stunning cliffs at Los Gigantes to the pine forests in the national park…this island has so much more to offer other than great weather.
Commenting on today’s announcement, Joe Gilmore, Managing Director, Ireland West Airport said “We are delighted to welcome the news that Ryanair will operate a new weekly service to Tenerife during winter 2019/20. This will be a major boost for our winter schedule and will be the second weekly winter service to the sun-drenched Canary Islands, in addition to our weekly Lanzarote service with Ryanair.
“This will come as welcome news to our loyal customers in the West, North West and Midlands regions of Ireland providing even more choice and low fares to the Canary Islands during the winter season.”
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said “We are pleased to launch our Irish winter schedule 2019. Irish customers and visitors can now book seats as far as March 2020 and enjoy our latest customer care improvements, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight with Ryanair.

Today’s announcement is the latest in a number of positive route announcements in recent months with Ryanair set to operate a new twice weekly service to Cologne from June 1st 2019 and also adding an extra 20,000+ seats on their services to Barcelona and Bristol in 2019.
