Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“Ryanair is delighted to announce 3 new routes from Edinburgh to Faro, Marrakesh and Paris and increased frequencies on 11 existing routes to provide Scottish consumers/visitors with even more low fares to 38 exciting destinations from Edinburgh this summer. Ryanair’s 2.5m Edinburgh passengers will sustain 2,500 local jobs. To celebrate these new aircraft and routes Ryanair is extending its 1m £5 seat sale, for travel across Europe in March, until midnight Thursday. Since seats at these crazy low prices will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on www.ryanair.com”.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
