Scotland and Ryanair

In what might be a devastating blow for Scottish government-owned Prestwick Airport, Ryanair is to switch its Stansted and Dublin services to Glasgow International for the winter season. 

Stansted to Edinburgh will be introduced too and all three destinations are to be served three times daily.  Stansted also gains Athens, Basel, Bordeaux, Bucharest, Cologne, Perpignan, Podgorica, Prague, Rabat and Skelleftea.  Edinburgh has in recent times been dropped by CityJet at London City and easyJet from Southend.

Ryanair says it will continue to fly seven routes from Prestwick over the winter months. 

"Ryanair remains committed to its long standing base at Prestwick where the airline has a major maintenance facility and is currently in discussions with Glasgow Prestwick and the Scottish Government, its new owners, to explore growth opportunities to/from Prestwick," the company said in a statement.

In a statement the Scottish government emphasised that it will remove Air Passenger Duty (APD) on all flights out of the country if it were to gain the yes vote in the forthcoming referendum.  www.ryanair.com
