Ryanair to add 12 new Stansted routes

21 Nov 2013 by GrahamSmith

Ryanair will launch 12 new routes from London Stansted next year, while also upping the frequencies on 17 existing routes.

From April, the budget carrier will fly from Stansted to Basel, Bordeaux, Brive, Bucharest, Comiso, Dortmund, Lisbon, Osijek, Podgorica, Prague, Rabat and Skelleftea. Four of these routes (Bordeaux, Dortmund, Lisbon and Rabat) had already been announced (see news, September 17).

The 12 new destinations will take the total number of Ryanair routes from Stansted to 126 for next summer.

Ryanair will also add more frequencies on another 17 existing routes from Stansted including major cities such as Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid, Milan and Rome.

CEO Michael O'Leary said: "Ryanair is pleased to deliver 12 new Europe routes to/from Stansted... as well as increased frequencies on 17 existing routes, which will deliver over 1,300,000 additional passengers per annum and sustain over 1,300 'on-site' jobs at Stansted Airport."

Ryanair agreed a new expansion deal with Stansted in September after the airport was purchased by Manchester Airports Group. Under the agreement, Ryanair has vowed to increase its capacity at Stansted by seven million passengers per year.
