Cead mile failte! Passenger arrivals into Ireland are up 21% in April




New figures from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) show a 20.9 per cent increase in the number of passengers arriving in Ireland, with more than 1,785,000 passengers arriving in Ireland on overseas routes in April 2023, reports Breaking News.

That figure compares to 1,476,600 arrivals in April 2022. This is also a 4.2 percent increase from pre-pandemic levels, when 1,712,900 passengers arrived on overseas routes in April 2019.

This growth is even more significant compared to April 2021, when only 69,400 passengers traveled on these routes. Low numbers in 2021 reflect travel restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic, reports Breaking News.

Of the arrivals, 1,676,600 passengers arrived by air and 108,300 by sea last month.

The majority of people arriving in Ireland were from the UK, 634,500 from the UK, up from 548,300 a year ago. Outside the UK, the Spanish routes remain the busiest destination. In April 2023, 245,900 passengers arrived on these routes, an increase of 24.4 percent compared to April 2022, reports Breaking News.
