The Irish low-cost airline Ryanair announced yesterday, August 31, that it will add 14 new routes from its three airports in London to Malaga, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura from October.
Ryanair attributed the expansion of its operations at London’s Stansted, Gatwick and Luton airports to the advancement of the Covid vaccination campaign and the recovery of traffic in the sector, driven by “consumer confidence,” it said in a statement.
It also recalled that it will face the increase in its routes with the arrival of the 55 Boeing 737-8200 Gamechanger aircraft this winter, while it plans to create 500 new jobs at the three airports.
Ryanair will connect from Luton (northwest of London) with the airports of Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria, Grenoble (France), Shannon (Ireland) and the Italian airports of Naples and Turin.
From Gatwick (north), it will fly to Malaga, while in Stansted (northeast) it will operate routes to Helsinki and Tapera (Finland), Stockholm (Sweden), Zagreb (Croatia), and Oradea, Trapani and Treviso (Italy).
“Ryanair is committed to rebuilding London’s tourism sector, employment and connectivity as we grow across Europe and air travel returns to pre-COVID levels,” said the airline’s CEO Michael O’ Leary.
The manager asked the British Government to eliminate some of the restrictions it maintains due to the pandemic, such as the obligation to present PCR tests at arrivals “for those who are fully vaccinated.”
