Ryanair extends its summer schedule with three new routes for 2020 on sale now
Ryanair has announced three new Manchester routes to Denmark, France and Ireland, starting in March 2020.
The airline will be flying to Copenhagen (daily), Kerry (twice weekly) and Paris Beauvais (four times a week), as part of its extended UK Summer 2020 schedule.
It is also increasing flights throughout the summer to Shannon in Ireland, from five to six times a week.
Ryanair’s Eimear Ryan said: “Manchester consumers and visitors can now book their summer holidays on 66 routes as far out as October 2020, flying on the lowest fares and with the greenest/cleanest major airline in Europe, with the lowest CO2 emissions per passenger/kilometre.”
To celebrate the new Manchester routes, Ryanair has launched a seat sale on its European network with fares from £14.99 for travel from now until the end of March 2020, which must be booked by Thursday, January 23, only on the Ryanair.com website.
EasyJet has launched 16 new flights from UK airports to cities including Barcelona, Bordeaux and Venice.
But the airline has cut other services as it marks its 1,000th route.
The company will start five new routes from Manchester, as well as new flights from London Luton, London Stansted, Liverpool, Bristol, Belfast and Glasgow.
The seats are on sale now for winter services launching from October.
The Manchester to Bordeaux route will be easyJet’s 1,000th.
However some UK routes have been cut. The anna.aero flight website says it has found 32 services not running this winter, mainly serving German airports like Hamburg and Berlin.
UK routes not running this winter include Liverpool to Lisbon, Luton to Hamburg and Berlin to Edinburgh.
UK country director for easyJet Sophie Dekkers said: “EasyJet has come such a long way since our first ever route from London Luton to Glasgow in 1996 and we are so excited to have reached the 1000 routes milestone today.
“The launch of these 16 new routes across the UK provides our passengers with even more amazing destinations across Europe for both holidays and business travel.”
