Busy summer ahead for Ryanair

More than 500 routes throughout Europe have gone on sale with the launch of Ryanair’s UK summer 2020 schedule. Fourteen of the routes are new, including unusual destinations such as Cluj in Romania and Terceira in Portugal.

Chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs (below) said the schedule, which also includes more flights on 46 other routes, was expected to deliver 46.3m customers a year and support 35,000 jobs at Ryanair’s 21 UK airports.

Of the new routes in the summer line-up, Edinburgh – Bydgoszcz will have two services a week; Manchester – Pisa, two; Stansted – Cluj, three; Stansted – Kosice, three and Stansted – Terceira, one.

Nine new summer services will include Exeter – Alicante (two a week); Edinburgh –Bucharest (three); Stansted – Dresden (three) and Essaouira (two); Luton – Krakow (four) and Seville (three); and Manchester – Katowice (three), Milan Malpensa (five) and Prague (nine).

■ Ryanair, which claims to be the greenest and cleanest major airline in Europe, with the lowest CO2 emissions, has also been celebrating this month after carrying a record-breaking 150m customers across Europe in 12 months – more than 25 times the population of the island of Ireland.
