Ryanair has announced 2 new routes: Derry to Manchester and Leeds-Bradford to Poznan to start in the winter.
Derry to Manchester will operate three weekly flights starting from winter ’21. Leeds-Bradford to Poznan will operate twice weekly.
Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason Mc Guinness, said:
“As Europe’s No.1 airline, Ryanair remains committed to re-building Europe’s aviation and tourism industry by restoring connectivity and growing its network of passengers to over 225 million by 2026. As Ryanair takes delivery of 55 additional Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft this winter, we are delighted to add this new route from Derry to Manchester and Leeds-Bradford to Poznan.
As consumer confidence in air travel steadily restores, Ryanair is once again calling on the UK Government to scrap or suspend APD (Air Passenger Duty) to allow airlines to quickly recover connectivity, jobs and tourism in the aftermath of the pandemic.
APD makes UK airports very uncompetitive compared to those in Europe, where Ryanair continues to add capacity having opened several new bases in recent months, including Agadir, Zagreb, Billund, Stockholm, Riga and Turin. While Ryanair is committed to the UK and to Derry airport, the lack of Government support continues to create barriers to boosting traffic and growth.”
To celebrate, Ryanair has launched a £19.99 seat sale for travel until the end of March ‘22, which must be booked by midnight Friday, 15th October on www.Ryanair.com – the perfect excuse for a well-deserved getaway with family or friends.
