The last passenger is here seen checking in for Ryanair’s first flight to Pisa in Tuscany, Italy from Cork, the second-largest city in Ireland.
- Ryanair launched a modest four routes during the last week. Three of these were from Genoa (GOA) in northwestern Italy’s Mediterranean coast to destinations in Spain; Ibiza (IBZ), Madrid (MAD) and Valencia (VLC). This brings to eight the number of routes the airline operates from Genoa. The previous five routes include three domestic routes to Bari, Cagliari and Trapani, and international services to Brussels Charleroi and London Stansted. Last year passenger numbers at Genoa airport increased by 9.3% to just under 1.4 million. The fourth new route launched this week is between two bases; Cork (ORK) in Ireland and Pisa (PSA) in Italy. All of these new routes will be served twice weekly apart from Genoa – Venice, which gets three weekly flights.
