Ryanair launches 12 new routes from 19 airports in 11 countries

In Riga, the new Ryanair route to Leeds/Bradford was celebrated with a Union Jack cake. Cutting the cake were Aldis Mūrnieks, Member of the Board of Riga Airport, and Elina Hakkarainen, Ryanair’s Baltic Sales and Marketing Executive, who were flanked by Riga Airport’s Andis Damlics, member of the board, and Liene Freivalde, Head of Aviation Marketing.

  • Ryanair has launched a relatively modest 12 new routes this week (although we will be reporting on a further 20 next week). Of the 24 airports involved (spread across 11 countries), the leading country markets are Italy (seven), followed by Poland and the Netherlands with three each. The average weekly frequency of these 12 new routes is 4.3 helped by the airline launching a rare double-daily service between Rome Ciampino (CIA) and Genoa (GOA), 10 flights per week between Milan Bergamo (BGY) and Marseille (MRS), and daily flights between Bologna (BLQ) and Trapani (TPS). As a result, in terms of weekly departures, the leading country market among these new routes is Italy (58 new weekly departures) followed by France with just 14. According to our analysis both the Bologna – Trapani and Rome – Wroclaw routes have been operated by Ryanair in the past. Of particular interest are the Eindhoven – Krakow and Eindhoven – Marrakech routes as none of these airports are bases. A summary of the new routes is shown in the following table.
