Ryanair announces route expansion
Low-cost airline Ryanair has announced 50 new European routes from six UK airports.
Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said the flights to Marseille, Pisa, Bremen, Frankfurt and Alicante would significantly benefit the airport. The routes are Ryanair’s first to continental Europe from Edinburgh, which currently only operates Irish flights to Dublin and Shannon. According to recently released figures, Edinburgh Airport is on track to become the busiest in Scotland this year. Ryanair’s expansion from Edinburgh opens up brand new destinations such as Bremen and Marseille, and adds further choice and frequency for passengers flying to Spain, Italy and Germany.
The airline will offer new services, mainly to Italy, France and Spain, from Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Stansted and Newquay. It will also fly to three new airports in France and Romania. Ryanair will fly to four new routes from Manchester Airport from April next year. (BBC, icnetwork.co.uk)
