Ryanair announces new parking service at Dublin Airport

Ryanair customers can book parking through the airline's website again, following the launch of a new online service.
The service features a limited number of car parks, and will offer its customers "the lowest parking rates at Dublin Airport", the airline says.
As we publish, a booking for Terminal 1 short-term parking from 2pm on Friday, February 19 to 8pm on Sunday, February 21 was priced at €29.85.
The same booking cost €30.95 on Dublin Airport's website.
On other dates, however, prices for both websites were exactly the same.
Customers can book the Express Long-term Red car park through the website, but Dublin's Long-term Blue car park - both the cheapest and furthest from the airport - was not available to book on Ryanair.com on the dates we searched.
Ryanair customers have been unable to book parking at Dublin via the airline's website since November last, when a three-year contract expired and it and daa were unable to agree on the terms of a new agreement.
That situation appears now to have been resolved.
"Our best car parking rates are available online and our partnership with Ryanair will ensure passengers enjoy the best offers from both organisations,” said John Brennan, Dublin Airport General Manager Commercial.
As well as the airport's own website, customers can book parking with quickpark.ie (five minutes away by free shuttle), and Aer Lingus allows customers to pre-book on its website, although at the Dublin Airport rates.
Several nearby hotels also offer parking services.
To mark the launch of the new service, Ryanair is offering the first 1,000 customers booking Dublin Airport parking on its website the chance to win one of five pairs of return flights.
