Ryanair will next summer fly to London Stansted from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The budget airline will operate both routes three-times daily, it has been announced.
At Glasgow International, Ryanair will also introduce new routes to Bydgoszcz, Carcassonne, Chania, Derry, Dublin, Riga, Warsaw and Wroclaw. It will retain its 16 summer routes at Glasgow Prestwick.
Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary said: “Ryanair is pleased to launch its 2015 summer schedule, with nine new Glasgow International routes and 16 Glasgow Prestwick routes, which will deliver 1.35 million customers per annum to/from Glasgow.”
As well as the new Stansted route, Ryanair will increase frequencies on three other Edinburgh services — to Barcelona El Prat (five-times weekly), Pisa (thrice-weekly) and Rome (four-times weekly).
Ryanair this week launched its new Business Plus service (see news, August 27).
