Ryanair will commence cheap flights to Seville from London Gatwick this winter as it establishes its 44th base in the southern Spanish city.
The low-cost airline will permanently base two aircraft in Seville, allowing it to introduce ten new routes. In addition to Gatwick, flights to Bari, Paris, Eindhoven and Santiago will be introduced.
Passengers will also be able to travel on cheap flights to Valencia, Marseille, Venice and Palma once its Seville base is established in November.
In total, Ryanair will operate more than 250 return flights to and from Seville, increasing its passenger traffic at the airport to 1.5 million a year.
Stephen McNamara, Ryanair’s head of communications, said the carrier is "delighted" to be establishing its eighth Spanish base.
"Ryanair’s 1.5 million passengers will create and sustain 1,500 jobs locally in Seville," he commented.
Earlier this month, Ryanair confirmed that its operations at Bournemouth Airport will operate on a nine-month seasonal schedule, with no flights taking place during November, December and January.
