Ryanair saw a “blip” in demand after the Paris terrorist attacks, the airline’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs has said.

Mr Jacobs’ comments echo remarks made by Ryanair’s rival Easyjet this week, but Mr Jacobs said it was likely that Easyjet suffered a bigger impact because it does more business in France than Ryanair.

“I think we and everyone else saw that in the two weeks after it there was a blip in demand. I think it’s just there was general anxiety across Europe about travelling,

“In certain markets you can see across Europe, it has changed the dynamic”.

Mr Jacobs was speaking at the launch of Ryanair’s winter schedule for Dublin, which will see the airline add two new routes to Hamburg and Sofia.

There will be five new winter services to Athens, Bologna, Murcia, Porto and Seville, and more flights to Bucharest and Gatwick.
