Valencia

Ryanair, Europe’s No 1 airline, launched its biggest ever Glasgow summer schedule (2017), with four new routes from Glasgow to Lisbon, Palanga (Lithuania), Valencia and Zadar (Croatia).

Ryanair’s Glasgow summer schedule will see more frequencies to sun destinations for summer family holidays, lower fares as Ryanair passes on lower fuel costs, and an even better customer experience, as it rolls out year 3 of its “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme, and will deliver:

  • 4 new routes to Lisbon (2 wkly), Palanga (2 wkly), Valencia (2 wkly) & Zadar (2 wkly)
  • 6 new summer routes to Alicante (3 wkly), Brussels (2 wkly), Gran Canaria (1 wkly), Lanzarote (2 wkly), Malaga (4 wkly) & Sofia (2 wkly)
  • More frequency to Berlin (6 wkly)
  • 20 routes in total
  • 1.25m customers p.a. (+150,000)
  • 900* “on-site” jobs p.a.

Ryanair will continue to connect Glasgow with major business centres on high frequency, low fare services including Berlin (6 wkly), Dublin (3 daily) and London (3 daily), with better timings and lower fares, making Ryanair the ideal choice for Scottish business and leisure customers.

Paul White, business development manager at Glasgow Airport, said: “Since the launch of its base in October 2014, Ryanair has continually responded to demand by adding new routes. Today’s announcement is yet more good news and it brings the total number of routes the airline serves from Glasgow to 20.

“We have worked extremely hard to strengthen our connectivity with key European cities and this will be the first time Valencia, Lisbon, Palanga and Zadar will have been served as destinations from Glasgow Airport. I have no doubt all four will prove extremely popular and we are looking forward to the inaugural flights early next year.”

Ryanair will continue to connect Glasgow with major business centres on high frequency, low fare services including Berlin (six times weekly), Dublin (three-times daily) and London (three-times daily), with better timings and lower fares, making Ryanair the ideal choice for Scottish business and leisure customers.

Speaking in Glasgow today, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said: “We are pleased to launch our biggest ever Glasgow Summer 2017 schedule, which includes 4 new routes from Glasgow International to Lisbon, Palanga, Valencia and Zadar.

“Customers can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for summer 2017. As our recent guidance confirmed, Ryanair expects average fares to fall by between 10% to 12% in the 6 months to March 2017.
