Budget airline Ryanair has announced another batch of new routes out of the west of Ireland on the back of the travel tax being scrapped.

The carrier will run three new services from Knock — to Eindhoven in Holland, Glasgow-Prestwick in Scotland, and Kaunas in Lithuania — from April. Ryanair has also committed to increase frequencies on its London route. Ryanair claimed it will support 80 jobs following its announcement at Knock Airport, part of its aim to carry an additional 1m people at Irish airports in a direct response to the Government lifting the €3 travel tax from April. Ryanair has already made announcements for eight new routes out of Shannon and plans other investments for Cork, Dublin, and Kerry in the coming weeks.
