The airline will operate a total of 53 routes on Ryanair flights in Valencia, including two new summer routes.
Ryanair has launched its 2021 calendar in Valencia as part of its recovery from Covid. The airline will operate a total of 53 routes and more than 200 weekly flights, including four news routes, which will offer services to 3.1 million passengers per year.
Ryanair is restoring connectivity to Valencia and recovering Spanish air traffic, while vaccination campaigns continue across Europe in time for the peak holiday season.
To celebrate the schedule, the Irish airline has announced a seat offer with flights starting at €19.99 for travel.
Jason McGuinness, Commercial Director at Ryanair, said: “As Spain’s number 1 airline, we are delighted to contribute to the reactivation and growth of tourism in Valencia despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. After the success of the vaccination campaigns, Spanish air traffic, led by Ryanair, will recover strongly in the summer of 2021 and, therefore, we are very happy to announce our schedule for the Valencian city’s airport. This calendar will mean the traffic of 3.1 million passengers per year through 53 routes, including summer and winter destinations such as Belfast, Fuerteventura, Baden (Germany) or Gdansk (Poland).”
Ryanair Holdings Plc, the largest airline group in Europe, transports more than 149 million passengers a year, operating more than 2,400 daily flights from 81 bases and connecting more than 240 destinations in 40 countries.
The airline has a fleet that exceeds 470 aircraft and more than 16,000 employees.
The news comes after Spain expects to receive large numbers of tourists after the UK government announced that those who had been fully vaccinated could come back from amber list countries, including Spain, without quarantine this summer.
Airline Jet2 also announced it intends to reopen operations to all amber lit destinations it operates from July 19 after the UK government confirmed the date from which quarantine-free travel will be allowed for fully vaccinated travellers.
The airline had previously suspended all flights and holidays except to green list countries.
Jet2’s Chief executive Steve Heapy said: “This is the news that UK holidaymakers have been looking forward to, as it finally signals a meaningful restart to international travel.
“Instead of a handful of destinations to choose from, this news means our customers can plan and look forward to flights and holidays across 40 green and amber list destinations this summer. We will be restarting flights and holidays to all amber List destinations from July 19, 2021, onwards and we are ready for the wave of demand that this long-awaited and very welcome news will bring.”
The move will allow more vaccinated tourists to travel to amber list Spain this summer.
