Ryanair now flies to 50 destinations from Edinburgh Airport
RYANAIR is extending its winter network from Edinburgh airport with four new lines, Cork, Madrid, Palermo and Paris Beauvais. This brings the total number of destinations served from the Scottish capital to 50.
The no-frills carrier announced the addition of winter links to Knock, Tallinn, Shannon and Turin earlier this summer.
Fares are available at £ 19.99 one way for travel through the end of March 2022 if booked by midnight on Sunday.
Marketing Director Dara Brady said: “Ryanair remains committed to rebuilding the Scottish tourism industry and strengthening connectivity as Ryanair continues to expand in Europe and travel returns to pre-pandemic levels.
“As Ryanair takes delivery of 55 Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechangers’ this winter, we are delighted to announce these four new routes from Edinburgh following the recent travel announcement to Scotland – now operating a total of 50 links. ”
He reiterated a demand for the abolition or suspension of the air passenger tax “to allow airlines to quickly recover connectivity, jobs and tourism in the aftermath of the pandemic”.
Brady added: “APD makes Scottish airports very uncompetitive with Europe, where Ryanair continues to increase capacity, having opened a number of bases in recent months in Agadir, Zagreb, Billund, Stockholm, Riga and Turin.
“While Ryanair has made a commitment to Scotland and its Edinburgh airport, the lack of government support continues to create new barriers to boosting traffic and growth. ”
Edinburgh Airport Aviation Director Kate Sherry said: “We know people need and want to travel and with the restrictions easing we want to give them as many options as possible to finally make that trip they were waiting for.
“It is clear that the Edinburgh market is confident as a market for sustainable growth and it is good news that Ryanair is working with us to add new routes where possible and help people return to travel. safely. ”
