Ryanair launches five new winter routes to and from Malta, extends 11 summer routes to winter
Ryanair this morning launched five new winter routes to
and from Malta, namely Brussels-Zaventem (daily), Nuremburg, Toulouse and
Valencia (twice weekly) and Vilnius (once a week).
Addressing a news conference, spokeswoman C. Ravara
described this winter’s schedule as the biggest ever for Malta.
She said the airline will also be extending 11 summer
routes to winter. They are Athens and Manchester (three times a week),
Baden-Baden, Berlin, Bournemouth, Cologne and Girona (twice weekly) and Gdansk,
Glasgow, Poznan and Wroclaw (once a week).
Ryanair will also be increasing flight frequency to
Birmingham and East Midlands (three times a week) and London-Stansted and
Madrid (four times a week).
It estimates that it would carry two million customers a
year by March 2017. If that pans out, it would push Ryanair above Air Malta as
largest carrier out of Malta. (Source: timesofmalta.com, 7-Apr-2016)
