Glasgow Prestwick Airport Ryanair announce three sun routes for winter
Ryanair have today (Thursday May 29) announced three new destinations from Glasgow Prestwick Airport.
From the end of October they will operate flights to the popular sunshine destinations of Malaga, Tenerife and Faro. Seats are already on sale at www.ryanair.com
The announcement further strengthens Glasgow Prestwick’s route network, bringing the total number of scheduled destinations operated by Ryanair to 29 following several new route announcements in the last year.
Ryanair will also introduce an additional daily flight on their Belfast service, which currently operates once a day.
Mark Rodwell, Chief Executive of Glasgow Prestwick Airport, commented: “Today’s announcement once again demonstrates Ryanair’s commitment to expand and offer the best choice of European routes from Glasgow Prestwick.
“These new destinations have always been popular among Scots holidaymakers and it is great news that they will now be available throughout winter, with Ryanair’s low fares making them even more attractive.
“The Belfast service has performed well in the business and leisure markets since its introduction last year and the additional daily flight offers passengers on that route more flexibility.”
Bridget Dowling, Ryanair’s Sales and Marketing manager for the UK and Ireland, said: "Over two million passengers travelling from Glasgow Prestwick this year will save over £100 million by choosing Ryanair's guaranteed lowest fares over our competitors.
"This latest route expansion will deliver low fares to Faro, Malaga and Tenerife. Our existing routes will meanwhile provide passengers with lower fares and better punctuality compared to the high fares levied by British Airways and Easyjet in Scotland.
"To celebrate these new routes, we are giving away seats from £10 one-way for travel in June and July and we recommend passengers to book these £10 seats immediately on www.ryanair.com, as demand for these guaranteed lowest fares will ensure that they're snapped up quickly."
