Ryanair as announced plans for a new daily service between Glasgow Airport and Frankfurt as part of the airline's winter 2017 schedule, which also includes new routes to Madrid and Krakow.
Frankfurt is the latest major European city route operated by Ryanair from Glasgow Airport. Others include Berlin, Dublin, and London, alongside a wide range of winter sun routes.
Ryanair’s Glasgow summer 2017 schedule is attracting record bookings, with more frequencies to sun destinations for summer family holidays, including new routes to Lisbon and Valencia.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said: “We are pleased to announce a new route from Glasgow to Frankfurt am Main, our third new Glasgow winter 2017 route following Krakow and Madrid, with a daily service starting in October. Scottish customers and visitors can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for their summer or winter holidays, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight with Ryanair."
Glasgow Airport’s Managing Director, Amanda McMillan said: "The introduction of Ryanair’s direct service to Frankfurt is a first for Glasgow Airport and great news for our passengers.
"This daily service will link two cities with much in common and further strengthen our European connectivity. Frankfurt is one of the world's leading financial hubs and home to the European Central Bank, while Glasgow is often cited as Scotland’s economic powerhouse.
"Like Glasgow, Frankfurt is also a fantastic city break destination boasting more than 30 museums, a thriving night-time economy and central pedestrian shopping area, stunning botanic gardens and a diverse range of festivals.
"Ryanair has continually responded to growing demand at Glasgow Airport by adding new routes. Earlier this month, the airline unveiled plans for twice-weekly services to both Madrid and Krakow, which will also launch in October.
"Today’s announcement is yet more welcome news and will bring the total number of routes operated by Ryanair from Glasgow to 23."
