Ryanair announces expansion from three of its bases

Ryanair has announced that it will expand the number of aircraft at its Alicante, Bristol and Edinburgh bases

Cheap flights carrier Ryanair has announced that it will expand the number of aircraft at its Alicante, Bristol and Edinburgh bases from March.

Issuing the announcement yesterday (January 14th), Ryanair said that a further Boeing 737-800 would be based at Alicante from June, Bristol from July and Edinburgh from March.

The expansion will allow the airline to introduce four new flights to the Spanish city, 12 to Bristol and seven to the Scottish capital.

Commenting on the carrier’s growth, Ryanair’s Steven McNamara said: "Alicante, Bristol and Edinburgh today celebrate new aircraft and new routes. These go on sale from today and are sure to be popular this summer."

The new Alicante flights will commence on June 4th to the Irish destinations of Derry and Knock, while flights to Wroclaw will be introduced on June 5th and Bristol on July 3rd.

Annual Ryanair passenger traffic from the city is expected to rise to around two million, something that the airline has said will help to maintain 2,000 local jobs.

Europe’s largest low-cost airline welcomed the throwing out of the proposed Airport Development Fee at Frankfurt Hahn Airport earlier this week.
