Ryanair boosts its network with another 15 routes

Carol Benzie, MD of Aberdeen Airport, along with the inaugural flight crew, sent-off the Scottish airport’s latest Ryanair route addition to Faro with a bit of flag-waving. The route is the third to be launched at Aberdeen this year and joins the already operating holiday routes to Malaga and Alicante; both of which took flight for the first time earlier this year.

  • Ryanair has launched 15 new routes from three airports this week. The average sector length of the new city pairs is 1,481 kilometres, with the shortest airport pair being the 518-kilometre domestic hop from Valencia (VLC) to Santander (SDR) in Spain, while the longest is the 2,005-kilometre route from Naples (NAP) to Lisbon (LIS). The average weekly frequency of the 15 new routes is 2.4. 10 of the airport pairs, or 67%, will be flown with a twice-weekly frequency. Only four routes will see any direct competition for Europe’s biggest airline (in terms of passengers carried).
