Ryanair calls for Dublin Airport Metro to be scrapped

29-Mar-2011 11:14 AM

Ryanair again called (28-Mar-2011) on the new Irish government to "demonstrate its commitment to 'change and reform'" by scrapping the EUR5 billion Dublin Airport Metro, a metro line linking central Dublin with Dublin Airport. The LCC says the metor line is an investment "the airport doesn’t need [and] passengers won’t use." Ryanair stated the airport is well service by bus operators, the Port Tunnel and the upgraded M50 motorway. The LCC added that many will be deterred from using the metro line "when it will be quicker and cheaper to drive to Dublin Airport and park there." [more]
