Ireland-based budget airline Ryanair is to create 200 new positions in IT at its offices in Swords, Co. Dublin. The roles will be in technology, software and digital marketing areas. These positions are expected to be filled over the coming year.

An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny welcomed the announcement, who noted the zero travel tax incentive has been responded to by the industry by creating more jobs.

In 2013, Ryanair announced the creation of 300 jobs in Ireland with a route expansion plan for 2014.
